Situated in the prime center of the country’s main CBD, The Net Metropolis was conceived as a landmark to represent the developers’ next generation of iconic and ecologically responsive buildings. The Net Metropolis superblock has 3 office towers ranging from 24 to 40 stories that rest on 6 levels of above-grade parking, and a fully-arcaded retail and parking podium enhanced by 2 amenity parks which function not only as open amenity spaces but also as landscaped focal points. Derived from a study of solar conditions and outward views, the towers are orientated so each is rotating off the other’s axis, with each subsequent structure fanning out in a dynamic and non-monotonous cascading direction. Each tower is wrapped with leading edge diagonal aluminum solar screen overlays to minimize incident solar heat gain and optimize natural light while preserving the scenic views. These screens form over sails that define the aspirational form of the towers that point to the heavens above. The Net Metropolis “leads” the way by being the World Green Building Council’s (WGBC) sole Pilot Project for the Philippines.
