The Met is a 69 storey condominium located in Bangkok. WOHA, the architectural firm, won the President's Design Award - Design of the Year for The Met.[2] It is the fourth tallest building and tallest residential building in Thailand.

The Met has a height of 228 metres and 69 floors. It contains 370 condominium units. It is composed of six towers connected by skybridges. Sunshades, overhangs, and walls of live greenery filter sunlight and protect interiors from overheating. The gaps between the towers contain terraces with pools and sky gardens. The staggered blocks of the structure's mass are oriented to let the sun pass through the building on its regular course. The apertures through this building are meant to increase the strength of passing breezes and to cool the living units. The architects conceived of this building as a model for high-rise construction in a low-wind tropical climate, reworking the worldwide model developed for cold climates with high winds.

The Met has won the 2009 Bronze Emporis Skyscraper Award.
