Melbourne's skyline will soon be home to the world's first Beyoncé-inspired skyscraper, as Australian firm Elenberg Fraser unveil plans for an ambitious new building...

The curvaceous 68-storey tower was inspired by Beyoncé's video for Ghost, which sees dancers performing in tightly wrapped fabrics.

The 226-meter tall skyscraper has been granted planning permission, although a completion date is yet to be revealed. The building will feature 660 apartments plus a 160-room hotel and will be located in Melbourne's central business district.

"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," said Elenberg Fraser. "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."
