If you like it then you should have built a tower after it
Beyoncé’s influence has already been felt in the music business, and now she’s leaving her mark on…architecture? Yup: the singer was an inspiration for a new skyscraper that’s been given planning approval in Melbourne, Australia, according to Dezeen. Specifically, the architectural firm Elenberg Fraser says the curved design of the Premier Tower, which will house 660 apartments and a 160-room hotel, pays homage to Bey’s “Ghost” music video.
Here’s an excerpt from the official description of what might be the most ***flawless building in the world:
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.
