Top Pick Thursday

Today’s post was done entirely on the WordPress app for the iPhone.

Today’s Top Pick is of a building that brings back many great memories for me. In 2001, I spent some time in Europe. While there, I had the opportunity to visit Prague. The city is beautiful in that has been in the hands of so many different rulers and kingdoms throughout history that the buildings are actually built differently with each influence of that period. There are also modern buildings. This being one of them.

This building was the design of Frank Gehry and, it is one of the only buildings in Prague designed by someone outside of Europe (that is what I was lead to believe at least). And he is an American! (well, Canadian American 🙂 )

You can see more of Stevacek’s work on his Flickr page.
