Favorite building, structure, or architectural piece, and why? 

One of my favorite architectural pieces in the world is the “Dancing House” in Prague, designed by Vlado Milunic, a Croatian-Czech architect. The deconstructive shape of the building that harmonizes with the surrounding buildings is what makes it unique.
