Dancing House, Prague
The Tancici Dum is a funny building on Praha 2.
It looks like 2 people dancing and its called also the fred and ginger house.
The architecht is Frank O. Gehry.
Built 1992 to 1996 on blank space left by air raid in February 1945
Nicknamed Fred & Ginger
The architects had a field day with this one. The Dancing Building, apparently modelled on Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers.
The dancing building was built between 1992 and 1996 on the site of a blank space, which was left after an air raid in February 1945. It is near Jirasek bridge.
Not some where to actually visit but to view from outside.
Built in the early 90's apparently it has caused some controversy amongst the locals
It is a recent building around the Karlovo namesti district, very modern design. The slanted column is likened to Ginger Rodgers holding to Fred Astaire when dancing.
This is a modern building that I like. It's used by private offices so you can't enter in...
An unusual work of architecture. We actually went to the area to look at a couple of cubist buildings but they didn't appeal at all to our taste. This is more like it!
No earthquicks in Prague, just art. There is a pricy reastaurant called La Perle de Prague inside this modern building from 1990.
A few meters upstream from the Karluv Most are two modern buildings with an interesting shape. It has curvy outlines made by the architects Milunc and Gehry between 1992-1996.
If you like architecture, see the 'Dancing House' at Jiraskovo namesti. Andersen Consulting has its offices there.
You can't miss the Dancing buildings! They are on the river and it's quite difficult to describe their impact on you. You love them or you hate them...I loved them at once!
This is one of the few modern buildings in the center of Prague, and it has fitted in very well adding variety and style. It is located in Nove Mesto on the Vltava's riverbank.
Extra famous spot ... worthy of a visit to pay the fee to architect Frank O. Gehry, who has developed part of the project.
The Dancing House (or Tancici Dum) is one of my favorite example of modern architecture.
The inside is mostly offices, with an overpriced French cafe at the top, but the exterior is worth a look.
