AceShowbiz - Kanye West has begun building prototypes for "new age homes" in the hills of Calabasas, California.
Photographs obtained by TMZ.com depict the dome-like structures, and the publication reports Kanye is building the frames as prototypes for a new type of home, and hopes the uniform design will help bring communities together and break down barriers between the classes.
The "Gold Digger" star's latest project has been in fruition for a couple of weeks, according to the outlet, with the dome-like structures each standing around 50 feet high, on a 300 acre plot of land the star acquired a few years back.
Sources revealed the project is in an "early state," and shared the musician is studying dwellings "from every period of man's existence on earth" to create the perfect living space.
Kanye's foray into architecture was revealed in a profile piece for Forbes magazine earlier this month, with reporter Zack O'Malley Greenburg describing Kanye taking him on a tour of housing prototypes "inspired by ('Star Wars' character) Luke Skywalker's childhood home."
"West has been working with a team to design prefabricated structures that sport the same austere aesthetic, with the goal of deploying them as low-income housing units," he explained.
