Dancing House, Prague
Designed by Czech architect Vlado Milunic and American architect Frank Gehry in the early 1990s, Prague's Dancing House gained its moniker when Gehry referred to it as "Fred and Ginger."
The building overlooks the Vltava River and resides in the midst of a Baroque and Art Nouveau-style neighborhood. Its construction provoked controversy. Still, Time magazine gave it the 1996 Design of the Year award and in 2005 the Czech National Bank issued a coin featuring its facade.
