Old Prague railway station 

Prague's deconstructivist "Dancing House," colloquially called "Fred & Ginger," built by Czech architect Vlado Milunić in concert with Frank Gehry, on the site of a building destroyed by U.S. bombing in 1945. It was pretty controversial, rather at odds with Prague's more traditional architecture:
