The video for Beyonce’s song “Ghost” — from the BEYONCÉ album, has inspired the building of a new skyscraper in Australia.
According to The Verge,
Architecture firm Elenberg Fraser has reportedly been given funds to build a skyscraper at 134 Spencer Street in Melbourne. And apparently, the building will contain “spiraling curves” that “recall the twists and turns of a woman dancing in black cloth.”
The description of the skyscraper reads,
“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 Beyonce’s ‘Ghost.'”
