International Highrise Award 2012-13

Today i 'd like to show you a documentation about the high´rise prize given by the City of Frankfurt in Cooperation with the german Architecture Museum located there.

They announce this award every 2 years to honour the most innovative Building being built in that period, considering ecological,functional, technical aspects.



In the year 2012 the Winner was the "MET" in Bangkok.




The Met is decidedly programmatic in terms of its functionality. It hinges on the idea of opening up a high-rise, enabling it to quite literally breathe within a mega-city.



With its individual sky gardens, it is interesting in itself, particularly in a district of Bangkok. Its facade breaks down the scale, while housing a passive, straightforward, and intelligent solution.






Similar to the principe of Le Corbusier,it is tougher and more radical than previous WOHA designs. It meets the need that Thais have for a personal front door, importinga suburban situation into the sky, which is a luxury in itself and therefore very desirable.
