The official name of Gehry's office building is "Rasin Building", but it is often referred to as the "Fred and Ginger" building or the "Nationale-Nederlanden Building" (the client's name). It appears to be an abstracted, corseted Ginger Rogers leaning against a top-hatted Fred Astaire. The Ginger tower is elevated on stilts and is sheathed in glass, while Fred is a concrete cylinder.
This picture is a side view of the building composition, which front along a four lane street running parallel to Charles River at the base of the Jiraskuv bridge.
