Designed between 1992 and 1996 The Dancing House is a very unique and striking building in Prague the capital of Czech Republic. It curves and defies classic architectural styles. Its architects, Vlado Milunic and The American Frank Owens Gehry named the building Fred and Ginger Building after the legendary dance duo. The building is an example of deconstructivist architecture with unusual shapes. Construction includes 99 concrete panels with different shapes and dimensions. Each panel requires its own unique wooden form.

The Dancing House represent a man and a women dancing together. It was awarded The Design of the year 1996 award from the American Time magazine. The best thing about this building is that it doesn’t fit in with its surroundings where Art Noveau houses can be seen.

In the interior of the building there are nine stories mostly made up of offices. There is a French restaurant in the house that is said to have a beautiful view over Prague at the top.
