Staff WriterLast week was a good week to be an architect student at Harvard Graduate School Of Design. Kanye West made a surprise appearance to a class of architecture students, joined by the art director of his creative agency, DONDA, and his fiancee Kim Kardashian. Kanye started off his (very brief) lecture by announcing to the people listening that he was giving them all tickets to his show that night -- wow! Towards the end of his speech, he admitted he was nervous to have them attend. "I'm a bit self-conscious because I'm showing it to architects. So the stage does have flaws in it. It's an expression of emotion, so give me a pass on that." Who knew Kanye could feel self-conscious about his work? The speech, although short, was touching and inspiring, knocking down people who try to stifle creativity. "I've tasted what it means to create and be able to impact and affect in a positive way, and I know there is more creativity to happen, and I know that there's traditionalists that hold back the good thoughts and there's people in offices that stop the creative people and are intimidated by actual good ideas," he said. "I believe that utopia is actually possible. But we're led by the least noble, the least dignified, the least tasteful, the dumbest, and the most political." The students met his observation with cheers.
This lecture was the beginning of a lecture series that Kanye plans on continuing throughout his tour. Design students, here's hoping he drops by your classroom!Watch the speech below:
