Kanye West has begun building ‘community housing’ domes on his 300-acre Calabasas property in the hopes of breaking ‘barriers that separate classes.’
Sources familiar with the project told TMZ that the ‘Gold Digger’ rapper believes that the domes will ‘break barriers that separate classes… namely, the rich, the middle class and the poor.’
In an earlier interview with Forbes, West told a reporter that the domes could ‘hopefully be used to house the homeless, having them live in spaces said to be sunk into the ground’.

The domes are said to stand approximately 50-ft high and appear to currently be just hollowed out wood structures.
The project is said to be in its ‘early state’ and Kanye’s team is said to be pulling ‘from every period of man’s existence on earth.’
Those who have gotten a sneak peak at the project say that it is massive and larger than life.

‘Dynamic’ has been the word used to describe the project, which fits the exclusive brand that the fashion-mogul has come to be known for.
‘There, with the hazy heft of something enormous and far away, stand a trio of structures that look like the skeletons of wooden spaceships,’ Zack O’Malley Greenburg wrote of the project in Forbes cover piece on Kanye.
‘They’re the physical prototypes of his concept, each oblong and dozens of feet tall, and West leads me inside each one. He tells me they could be used as living spaces for the homeless, perhaps sunk into the ground with light filtering in through the top. We stand there in silence for several minutes considering the structures before walking back down to his lurking Lamborghini and zooming off into the night.’
