Beyoncé’s Curves Inspired a 78-Story Skyscraper
Architects at Elenberg Fraser were inspired by the pop diva's "Ghost" video when designing the Premier Tower in Melbourne
Melbourne’s skyline is about to get a little more bootylicious: An Australian architecture firm, Elenberg Fraser, has modeled designs for the Premier Tower after none other than Beyoncé.
The 78-story mixed-use building was inspired by the singer’s look in the music video for “Ghost,” which features dancers wrapped in skintight gray and black cloth.
Architects said the tower’s curvaceous shape—developed with a technique known as parametric modeling—is meant to redistribute the building’s mass, optimizing its efficiency and resistance to weather.
