Tancící dum (Dancing House)
Tancící dum (Dancing House) Review
This whimsical building, one of Prague's most popular, came to life in 1996 as a team effort from architect Frank Gehry (of Guggenheim Bilbao fame) and his Croatian-Czech collaborator Vlado Milunic. A wasp-waisted glass-and-steel tower sways into the main columned structure as though they were a couple on the dance floor—the "Fred and Ginger" effect gave the building its nickname. It's notable for a Gehry piece as it's more grounded in the surrounding area than his larger projects.
