The Dancing House was constructed during the years 1992 to 1996. The building is metaphorically called the Dancing House or also Ginger and Fred. It is named this way because the towers remind of the famous dancers Ginger Rogers and Fred Astair. A rock tower represents Fred, and Ginger is symbolized by a tower made of glass. The top of the male tower (Fred) is covered with imaginary hair.
The building was awarded the prestigious prize of the American Time magazine – it won the design category in 1996.
