Melbourne will soon get “Beyonce-fied” as a new skyscraper shaped like none other than Beyonce is all set to go up in the Australian metropolis.

The 68-story Premier Tower architecture by Elenberg Fraser features stunning curves and edges inspired by 33-year-old singer’s famed form, reported Us magazine.

The building, which is expected to house retail and residential space, mimics the singer’s shape in an artistic way and also finds function in its design.

The firm in a statement wrote that the project was the culmination of their significant research into how to best work with individual site and climatic constraints, brought together using their new parametric modeling techniques.

They added that the complex form a vertical cantilever was 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.

It is being said that the Grammy winner’s ‘Ghost’ video wherein she is seen in a figure-hugging swath of fabric that displays her curve has inspired the design of the skyscraper.

The ‘Crazy in Love’ hit maker is yet to comment on her 68-story tribute, which is currently without a planned completion date.
