The Dancing House

I like to spend a little time each day on ApartmentTherapy.com because I like interior design, but more importantly because I’m an insatiable looky-loo and the site frequently features slideshows of people’s apartments and houses.

Sometimes the site also features architecture as was the case yesterday when an AT blogger posted this pic of “The Dancing House” in Prague, a building designed with no shortage of wit by architect Frank Gehry.

It was built between 1994-1996. “The Dancing House” is just a nickname folks in Prague gave the building. (Others call it the “Drunk House.”) It was originally christened “Fred and Ginger,” for the famous dancing duo Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers.

It’s a very controversial building. Not all Prague residents are nuts about its unorthodox design although it was fully endorsed by Vaclav Havel, the president of Czechoslovakia at the time. Then again, Havel is a pretty revolutionary guy.
