Confessions of an Interior Designer: Dancing
|"Architecture should speak of its time and place, but yearn for timelessness." |
Ever since I first saw this beautiful building in one of my architectural history classes it has been one of my favorites! The beauty, the lines, the textures... I could go on!
This beauty is designed by the amazing architect Frank Gehry and Vlaso Milunic. To be honest I am on the fence about a lot of Gehry's designs, but this one I love.
The Dancing House is in Prague, Czech Republic and it's nickname is Fred and Ginger. The architect originally named the house after the famous dancers Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers because it resembles a pair of dancers, but later dropped the name because he was afraid to import American Hollywood into Prague.
Perhaps I am just being silly and swooning after an weird house. Perhaps I should take dancing lessons to be like Ginger. Or perhaps this is just a Confession of an Interior Designer.
