Kanye West set tongues wagging this weekend when he announced he’s (possibly?) running for president – and that his Star Wars-inspired YEEZY Home project appears to be back underway.
According to Ye, the pod-like, affordable prefab YZY SHLTRS riff on Luke Skywalker’s childhood home. They feature basket-like facades with an oculus opening that funnels light down into the interior.

Construction on the prototype development for YEEZY Home started last summer and was abruptly halted when neighbours complained about noise and disruption from the California site. The unfinished structures were threatened with demolition – but a fresh photograph West revealed on Twitter appears to show work is back underway.
Kanye West captioned the shot, ‘YZY SHLTRS in process #2020vision’ – a nod to his presidency announcement.
