Back in January, Kanye West sat down with GQ at his ranch near Cody, Wyoming to talk about his plans for building the new YEEZY campus there. In a recently released video from the interview, we get our best look yet at what West is calling “a paradigm shift for humanity.”

The project brings together legendary American light-and-space artist James Turrell, the Belgian interior design wizard Axel Vervoordt, and the Italian architect Claudio Silvestrin, in what looks to be a truly unique architectural creative exchange.

In the clip below, West details how he chose this expansive plot of land and what his vision is for its future. He tapped his mega-star architects and artists for their ability to "allow humans to maximize our potential" and literally and figuratively think outside the box. See how West's team plan to transform the landscape in the clip below.

In October last year, West spoke to Zane Lowe about his plans for his first property in Wyoming, saying “We’re building farms [Wyoming]; developing our own fabrics from farm to factory.”

In December it was reported that he had purchased a second property in Wyoming, which would be turned into a sample lab. Currently, YEEZY headquarters are located in Calabasas, California while its shoes are manufactured at factories operated by adidas, primarily in China.
