Night Dance
The Dancing House was designed by the architects Vlado Milunić and Frank Gehry. The building starkly contrasts from the surrounding Gothic, Baroque, and Art Nouveau structures. Although modern in appearance, the Dancing House is defined by history: it was built on a site that was air raided by the United States in 1945, and neighbors an area that Václav Havel's family owned during the Communist era. Gehry initially named the building "Fred and Ginger" after the famous dancers Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers, but afraid of importing American kitsch, decided to stick with the "Dancing House" instead.
