These two could be considered metabolist?

Hotel in Viana do Castelo, north of Portugal


Housing in Cascais/Estoril, suburb of Lisbon. This one is a mix between Space City method and international style

No, those are just building with cantilevers

Metabolist buildings are actually very rare and usually found in Japan. They are buildings that could be easily extended and expanded using pod like structures. They do end up with cantilevers to make the design interesting, but very few 'metabolist' buildings actually exist.

This is also a Metabolist building that could be expanded, built for the 1970 Expo in Osaka (now demolished)

Some metabolist's buildings i've never heard of here, unfortunately nothing to add, just a great resource!
Also i kind of have to disagree, they are sort of in the style of a lot of the metabolist's (the buildings with the cantilever's), just not super pod like.

I've heard the term, but I never really quite understood exactly what it was trying to be. Does it mean the units themselves have to be pods, which pretty much means it has to be somehow related to housing units, or is it more the structure itself is morph-able/expandable, as in space frame structures?

I guess 'expandable' architecture would be the best description. You could replace sections of the building or even build it upwards if you wanted to. But usually that was too much of a hassle and it never caught on.
