It seems Kanye’s West architecture career has kicked off in the shape of a low-income housing scheme, made of prefabricated concrete.

The American rapper first announced his architectural ambitions last month when he revealed that he would be opening up a new arm of his fashion label Yeezy named Yeezy Home. He wrote on Twitter that he was “looking for architects and industrial designers who want to make the world better.”

Fashion designer Jalil Peraza posted two renders of the project to his Instagram account where he credited himself, West, Petra Kustrin and Nejc Skufca as collaborators of the design.

Peraza, who is a long-time collaborator with West having previously worked on the rapper’s DONDA clothing line, is experienced with prefab designs through his work with Face Module, a company that produces pop – up retail locations or structures.

No other information about the project has been released.
