    With the Swiss architect, Kanye West wants to build two apartment buildings, a private school and an entire city out of the ground.

Important visitors in Graubünden: Kanye West (43) traveled to Switzerland by private jet last week to talk to the architect Valerio Olgiati (62) about future projects. The man from Graubünden is to build two residential buildings, a private school and an entire city in various US states for the musician.

During the meeting, the two looked at several of the architect’s buildings, including the Yellow House in Flims and the Plantahof Auditorium in Landquart. They also visited the studio built by Olgiati for the famous songwriter and writer Linard Bardill (64) in Scharans, GR. «Two days earlier, Valerio Olgiati asked me if he could show Kanye West my house. That was then combined with a lunch, ”explains Bardill when asked by BLICK. After the aperitif, there was a dish with pasta on the menu. “He found the house itself minimalist and was very fascinated by it.”

“He is a blatant person”

The meeting with West made a special impression on the musician. “He’s a blatant person,” he says. «A highly inspired artist. Interested, with a broad knowledge and a feeling for aesthetics. ” It is therefore no surprise to him that the US superstar became aware of his friend Valerio Olgiati. “Both are radical in their work and have a firm vision that is directed a hundred years ahead.” This is also what Bardill admires about the American. “Of course he’s controversial. But he has extreme creative power. He acts and is a person who drives everyone around and can inspire them. “

At the roughly three and a half hour meeting, those involved not only talked about architecture: “We sang and played the board game Kalaha. That was an idea from Kanye, he brought it with him, ”says Bardill. He also showed the superstar one of the oldest Christian songs, “Veni creator spiritus”.

Everyone should know who flies across the world how

Bardill does not want to judge that Kanye West flew around the world for the meeting during the corona pandemic. “Everyone has to decide for themselves,” he explains. He also doesn’t know why Kanye West was able to enter Switzerland despite the general entry ban for US citizens.

He appeals to the personal responsibility and to the observance of the distances and hygiene rules. «I am neither a corona denier nor a harmless person. But it is important to me that this over-managed fear spiral is no longer managed. Fear is a bad advisor, it not only causes severe psychological damage, but also confused conspiracy theories. ”

Mayor of Ilanz / Glion GR pleased with the visit

Carmelia Maissen (43), mayor of Ilanz / Glion GR, was also happy about the high attendance. Kanye West dined with Valerio Olgiati in the Gault Millau restaurant Casa Casutt. “It’s nice that Kanye West is interested in our wonderful region and the high-quality architecture of father and son Olgiati,” says the CVP politician. They assume that Kanye West had a special permit for entry. “What the reasons are that he received this and whether this justifies a special permit is beyond my knowledge.”

She does not see a problem with accommodating a tourist from a high-risk country. The restaurateurs, retailers and cultural organizers would ultimately adhere to the corresponding protection concepts. “Every guest is welcome who is also responsible for adhering to the measures to cope with the Covid 19 pandemic.”

Five bodyguards during dinner

Therese Arpagaus, the manager of Casa Casutt, told “20 Minuten” about the visit of the mega-star: “There were five bodyguards on site.” There was a ban on photos during dinner. The landlady is not allowed to give any information about what Kanye West ate. Although the restaurant was full, the world star was not recognized. “I suppose our customers don’t know Kanye West,” says Arpagaus.

According to a report by the “Bündner Tagblatt”, Valerio Olgiati will be traveling to the USA in a next step to inspect the building land for West’s planned residential building in the US state of Wyoming.
