International Highrise Award

Today i 'd like to show you a documentation about the highrise Award 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 2010/11 the Winner was the "MET" in Bangkok.



http://www.highrise-frankfurt.de/en/...ze_winner.html

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.

The thing with all these skyscraper awards is that they're really just as superficial as a beauty pageant as no one on the jury actually visits these buildings and especially their context but solely base their decisions on photography and content provided by the architect or developer, or look beyond what happens to be in fashion at the moment. That's why already well-known usual suspects who don't need the extra attention always win these things. Then again like most awards, these are handed out to boost the image of the giver, not so much the recipients.
