Beyonce's Curves Inspire Elenberg Fraser's Design for Melbourne Tower

Beyonce's Ghost has inspired plans for a curvaceous, 226-meter-tall in Melbourne. Designed by Elenberg Fraser, the dubbed "Premier Tower" has received planning permission and will be built at 134 Spencer Street, adjacent to the Southern Cross station.

According to the architects, the mixed-use project's "complex form" was shaped by climatic restraints and after Beyonce's moving body seen in her recent music video Ghost. It is set to rise 68-stories on a stepped podium in the city's central business district. Once complete, it will house 660 apartments, a 160-room hotel, and retail space.
