Well, if you have any doubts, know that, according to the rapper, his company, currently engaged in the design of clothing and sneakers in collaboration with adidas, "the 2nd fastest growing company in history" with 160 positions to cover by the end of 2018, destined to hit a billion dollars this year.

West's interest in architecture is certainly not new.

Before founding Yeezy, he founded a design company called DONDA with the aim of bringing together a team of architects, designers, and directors to work with him. During a visit to the Harvard Graduate School of Design in 2013, he told students that "the world can be saved through design"; while in a BBC interview of the same year, he said:

"I want to do product, I am a product person. Not just clothing but water bottle design, architecture… I make music but I shouldn't be limited to one place of creativity. 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. 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."

Furthermore, in the past few months, he was seen wandering around the Southern California Institute of Architecture for the exhibition of the end-of-course works and interviewed the famous interior designer and collector Axel Vervoord.

Will this new adventure satisfy Kanye's hunger for ambition? Only time will tell.
