The Met  in Bangkok, Thailand has again drawn critical acclaim. Having already won International Highrise Award 2010, as well as the "World Housing Development of the Year" title at the 2009 World Architecture Festival, The Met has just scored the RIBA Lubetkin Prize for the Most Outstanding Work of International Architecture. The Royal Institure of British Architects has described the development as:
a highly deserving winner; the building combines beautiful design with sustainable credentials
WOHA's sixty six storey residential tower opened in 2009 and since then the two year old has won over a legion of fans for it's successful mix of high-end high-density vertical living at a superior, environmentally responsible level.
The design concept explores ideas for tropical development at high densities. The high rise tower proposes gardens and swimming pools in the sky in perforated towers that allow light and air to penetrate the slender forms.
Based in Singapore and prolific across South East Asia, the WOHA team are also responsible for Sydney's "The Hyde" development on Hyde Park, which this week celebrates its first birthday.
