Info text

The "Tančící Dům" (Dancing House), an administrative building on the Vltava River waterfront, was completed in 1996 as the first ambitious and also controversial architectural project after the Velvet Revolution of 1989. A bravely designed house by architects Frank O. Gehry and Vlado Milunič, given the surrounding historical buildings among which

it is standing. The building represents the two Holywood dancers Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire, hence the building name. The male dancer is represented by the stone tower and his female partner by the glazed tower. The building received a prestigious award from the American Time Magazine in 1996 in the category Best Design of the Year.
