The world is full of smart minds. Whether it is people making use of their creative juices or technical knowledge, some people just nail it. This is what is happening in Australia as you read this. A 68-storey building concept that has been inspired by singer Beyonce’s size 8 figure has been approved.
The building was inspired by Beyonce’s video “Ghost,” in which she shows her curves and her dancers bend and twist in an incredible way while wrapped in stretchy fabric. The building will obviously employ science and technology to achieve the form.
Beyonce is known to have an hour glass figure and is one of the sexiest female musicians 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,” says Melbourne-based architectural firm Elenberg Fraser. “For those more on the art than science side . . . we’re going to trust you’ve seen the Beyoncé’s music video ‘Ghost.,” it adds in an official statement.
The building will be located on Spencer Street, Melbourne. It will have 660 apartments and a 160-room hotel.
Here are photos of how the building will look like;
