Provocateur and sometimes-musician Kanye West wants to design your next home.

The entertainer tweeted Sunday afternoon that he’s starting an architecture arm called “Yeezy home.”

“We’re looking for architects and industrial designers who want to make the world better,” he tweeted.

West tweeted last month that his company Yeezy is evolving beyond its fashion roots, and that this year it will hit $1 billion dollars.

Back in 2013, he told an interviewer that he had an interest in architecture.

“I hang around architects mostly, people that wanna make things as dope as possible … This is the reason why I’m working with five architects at a time,” he said. “The time spent in a bad apartment, I can’t get that back. But the education I can get from working on it is priceless.” – Rich Bockmann
