Taneční düm - The Dancing House
Designed by Frank Gehry and completed in 1996, this Post-Modern office block has a crunched appearance that makes it look like the building is swaying and twisting. Built with a curvy corner cylinder that resembles a flared dancing skirt, the building has been dubbed Fred and Ginger by its supporters. Critics say the dynamic design clashes with the apartment houses on the same block. The building has a coffee shop at street level and a restaurant on the top floor, with offices on the other floors. Positioned on the Vltava River embankment near the Jirásküv Bridge the Dancing House greets visitors arriving from the airport.
