If Beyoncé needed any more validation that she's made it as a bona fide icon, here it is. In the form of a skyscraper.
According to architecture studio Elenberg Fraser, a 68-story skyscraper confirmed to be built in Melbourne was inspired by Queen Bey herself.
More specifically, the firm's website cites the music video for Beyoncé's 2013 hit "Ghost" as an influential factor in the structure's "spiraling curves [that] recall the twists and turns of a woman dancing in black cloth."
In the artistic video, the singer flaunts her rock-hard bod with a number of intricate dance sequences set to the moody tune.
"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," the description continues.
"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.'"
Thanks to the visionaries over at Elenberg Fraser, we finally understand architecture. Why can't everything just be put in terms of Bey?
Although there's no confirmed completion date, the Melbourne skyscraper will house 660 apartments, a 160-room hotel and retail stores. Fingers crossed that Bey and Jay might even have a permanent residency on the penthouse level!
Because that would be flawless.
