Jury-rating (extract): »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 ›breath‹ within a mega-city. Turning the traditional high-rise inside out and placing the outside spaces on the inside, it enables a very pleasant tropical living in a very economic structure that points the way forward for architects to look for innovative local responses to what a high-rise must deliver.«
