ART MEETS BEYONCE: BEYONCÉ-INSPIRED SKYSCRAPER TO BE BUILT IN MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA

In Melbourne, Australia, an innovative skyscraper is being built. This building which will have 660 apartments, a 160-room hotel, and a number of retail stores, was inspired by the Queen herself, Beyoncé.

Reportedly, this new work was designed by architecture firm Elenberg Fraser and is described as “a skyscraper whose spiraling curves recall the twists and turns of a woman dancing in black cloth.”

In the report, the project which is said to have been inspired by Beyonce from her music video, “Ghost”, says:
“This project is the culmination of our significant research into how to best work with individual site and climatic constraints, brought together using our new parametric modeling techniques. 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.”
Interesting, right?
