Beyonce’s curves inspire Melbourne tower

Architecture is great, not solely because of this, but definitely because the inspirations sometimes are amazing.

News, renderings, and official permission came out today for Melbourne’s newest skyscraper, dubbed the ‘Premier Tower,’ by Elenberg Fraser that is inspired by none other than Beyonce, namely her video for “Ghost”.

According to the architects, the mixed-use project’s “complex form” was shaped by climatic restraints and after Beyonce’s moving body seen in her recent music video Ghost. It is set to rise 68-stories on a stepped podium in the city’s central business district. Once complete, it will house 660 apartments, a 160-room hotel, and retail space.

Is there anything the Queen can’t inspire?!

Naturally, the tower looks beautiful.
