Beyonce has inspired plans for a 68-storey skyscraper to be erected in the heart of the city of Melbourne, Australia.
According to the architects, Elenberg Fraser, the building will be called ‘Premier Tower’. It was inspired by Beyonce’s 2013 music video for Ghost, which showed undulating fabric-wrapped bodies of dancers.
The 226-metre high rise has been designed with a series of curves and bulges as tribute to Queen B,
The building, which has gotten approval from the government, will house apartments, hotel rooms and retail space.
A press release from the website of Elenberg Fraser, reads:
“The complex form – a vertical cantilever – is actually the most effective way to redistribute the building’s mass, giving the best results in terms of structural dispersion, frequency oscillation and wind requirements. Art and science? You betcha. For those more on the art than science side, we will reveal that the form does pay homage to something more aesthetic – we’re going to trust you’ve seen the music video for Beyoncé’s Ghost.”
The Sasha Fierce-inspired Premiere Tower will be erected at 134 Spencer Street at the western end of Melbourne’s CBD.
