Basically it was a type of modernism that had "fused architecture with organic growth" (according to wikipedia). So you could extend buildings with pod structures, for example

http://www.mori.art.museum/english/c...out/index.html

I think most of the buildings on this thread are just brutalist, not metabolist

I actually don't think The Concourse belongs in here either, now that I think of it. For Singapore, The Golden Mile might suit this thread better.

Wikipedia actually has a half-decent section devoted to Metabolism. Kisho Kurokawa was a Metabolist, but that building in Melbourne is more Po-Mo. Then again, built architecture rarely if ever falls strictly into any one ism.
