Photographer's Note

This building must be one of the most famous of modern Prague. A project by the American architect Frank Gehry and his Czech co-architect Vladimir Milunic, marks the corner at the Jiraskuv Bridge. Officially named the 'Rasin Building,' soon after its conception it was dubbed 'Ginger and Fred,' as it dances like the famous couple Rogers and Astaire around the corner. It was built to fill an empty space, created by a WWII bombing.
