Marvel at the danc­ing house.

Cosmopolitan (Philippines) - - Cosmo Life -

De­signed by Croa­t­ian-czech ar­chi­tect Vlado Milu­nić and Cana­dian-born Amer­i­can ar­chi­tect Frank Gehry, the Danc­ing House is a stark con­trast to the gothic, baroque, and art nou­veau build­ings in the area. Its de­con­struc­tivist ar­chi­tec­ture sym­bol­izes the fresh start for the city (and the coun­try) that was un­der com­mu­nist rule for decades. Nick­amed “Fred and Gin­ger” by Gehry af­ter the leg­endary danc­ing duo, it's an ar­chi­tec­tural tri­umph and has gained in­ter­na­tional at­ten­tion since its com­ple­tion in 1996.
