Ah - thanks! I'd looked in the architecture and trivia sections, but hadn't thought to check under World Heritage Sites on Other Lists. Glad to see it already exists!

As for Dancing House, it is on the right bank of the Vltava River, near Jiraskuv bridge, and as far as I can tell, appears to be within the core zone.

Another addition to the Pritzker Prize connection would be:

Venice and its Lagoon: La Fenice opera house was rebuilt by architect Aldo Rossi (1990)

You can just go to the Connections homepage and search the word "Pritzker" in the little grey dropdown box called Connections almost at the top

Does that connection care about any core zones? I don't know if Bond was in Rio/Siena generally or any specific area that is WHS, just as example. He was also in Macao but only in a casino (not for the 2012 movie which was all filmed in the UK) which isn't part of the WHS so it wouldn't count right?

In Siena he apparently was at the Piazza del Campo, so in core zone: https://bondlocations.wordpress.com/2017/09/29/quantum-of-solace-in-siena-italy/
