Kanye West on Le Corbusier

"Architecture — you know, this one Corbusier lamp was like, my greatest inspiration."

"I would go to museums and just like, the Louvre would have a furniture exhibit, and I visited it like, five times, even privately. And I would go see actual Corbusier homes in real life and just talk about, you know, why did they design it? They did like, the biggest glass panes that had ever been done.

Kanye drops the name of French modernist Le Corbusier in reference to the songwriting and production on his new Yeezus. Read the full interview.
