I have always loved the inspired simplicity of Japanese art and design, but this one really does take my breath away. Curves are the basic building blocks of nature, not straight lines, but I cannot begin to imagine how much work went into creating this organic, deceptively simple shape. Pure perfection.
I hate brutalist architecture, but that doesn’t mean I hate all modern architecture. Case in point is this amazing building in Prague.
Called the Dancing House, or sometimes the Fred and Ginger house [in a nod to dancing legends, Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers], this organic looking building playfully denies the engineering that must have gone into its construction. Just looking at it makes me smile.
Here are a few more views:

Now I’m off to do some gardening on this glorious, sunny Sunday!
