Beyoncé's Majestic Curves Inspire Australian Skyscraper

Does this undulating skyscraper look familiar?

Australian design and architecture firm Elenberg Fraser recently received planning approval to move ahead with the Premier Tower, a new skyscraper near Melbourne’s Southern Cross station.

Jansen Aui, a design architect at the company, told The Huffington Post that the "forceful, multiple personas" of Beyonce's "Ghost" music video inspired the design.

The video features Beyoncé covered in black paint, Beyoncé dancing with fluttering fabric and dancers who may or may not be Beyoncé gyrating inside tubes of fabric.

Aui said "Ghost" portrays different personas, which he called "the muse, the fighter, the performer and the temptress." These personas inform the building's different uses, he said, including apartments, a hotel and retail space.


The firm isn't in contact with Beyonce, so we don't know what Queen Bey thinks of this 78-floor tribute to her charms. In case she has an opinion, we've reached out for comment and will update if we hear back.
