Kanye West’s Star Wars-inspired dome home prototypes could get the wrecking ball

Last year, Kanye West took to Twitter to announce the launch of Yeezy Home, the architecture and real development arm of the hip-hop artist’s bourgeoning design empire.

West, ever the visionary, made good on that promise last month when he showed off a prototype for his prefab home designed to house the low-income and homeless populations. Now the domed designs, which are inspired by desert homes on the fictional Star Wars planet of Tatooine, are in trouble. According to TMZ, West’s neighbors in Calabasas, Calif., complained enough about the noise coming from the his 300-acre property that inspectors from the L.A. County Department of Public Works showed up to check out the site.

They didn’t like what they found. The inspectors apparently told West that he needed to secure a building permit by Sept. 15 or his four domed prefab designs will be demolished. Though Los Angeles allows for temporary structures to be built without a permit, West’s were deemed too permanent to qualify as prototypes.

It’s a major inconvenience for West. But at the same time, too permanent? That’s kind of a vote of confidence.
