Frank Gehry
Date Built
Corner of Resslova and Rašínovo nábř
Frank Gehry's Nationale-Nederlanden building at the end of the Jiráskův Bridge has a number of knicknames.  It is known as "The Dancing House", "The Drunk House" but most often it is known as "Ginger and Fred" reflecting the idea that the two elements of the building appear to be dancing.

It was built on an empty site on the corner of the street beside the building that was home to
Vaclav Havel before he became President of the Czech Republic. The building's interior was designed Eva Jiricna. It is essentially an office building but it also contains a restaurant on the top floor offering a view over Prague.
