    That was a fascinating building. Definitely caught my eye when I was there…I was sorry we weren’t able to go inside and look around to see how it was laid out.

    Reminds me of the building Frank Gehry built for MIT,

    Looks like something inspired by Hundertwasser but the wikipedia article doesn’t list any of his work in Prague . . . anybody know who the architect was?

    Perhaps coincidentally, Gehry worked with the architect on this one! :)

    EH. This is the opposite of a coincidence.

    What’s with these “Goldbergs,” Rube and Frank?

    More like artist Salvador Dali.

    @Pugnacious…the buildings were actually constructed so the two towers looked like they’re dancing. It’s not as evident from that angle because the “arms” are obscured, but if you type “dancing buildings” into a Google search it should pop up near the top of the list and you’ll see what I men.

    @ UCrawford~

    I’ve heard of being joined at the hip… that big “staple” seems to do the trick.

    What Frank Goldberg is to architecture, Spike Jones and His City Slickers are to 1950s Big Band music.

    Check out Freddie Morgan(stern) in this classic piece.

    The buildings on the left are known as the “Fred and Ginger” buildings because they appear to be dancing together.
