Pop singer Beyoncé is not the first name you'd associate with architecture and design, but she has still managed to score a spot in our chart.
In 2015 an Australian firm cited her body as inspiration for a curvaceous tower to be built in Melbourne, catapulting the Texan-born entertainer onto our Hot List.
The 226-metre-high Premiere Tower by Elenberg Fraser gained approval in May 2015 for the site at 134 Spencer Street. Its undulating form is apparently based on the fabric-wrapped bodies of dancers in the singer's music video for Ghost – a song from her self-titled 2013 album.
Dezeen commenters were divided over the design – some applauded the architects' reference to popular culture, while others called the justification a "slap in the face" – and the debate earned the article a place in that week's comments update.
