Abstract: Asia is catching up with the developments of the West. Large mega-cities are emerging together with a new breed of super tall skyscrapers to house the ever increasing populations that migrate to these urban areas. These new skyscrapers differentiate themselves from the conventional models of high-rise living and are seen as a solution to meet the changing aspirations and demands of a contemporary Asian society. It is necessary to determine whether these tall buildings meet up to their expectations and intentions. This paper provides some insight to the current state of the high-rise residential building and identifies new trends of high-rise, high-density living that is emergent in Asia. A series of site evaluations is conducted to the iconic public housing project, the Pinnacle@Duxton, in Singapore and an exclusive condominium, the Met, in Bangkok. Findings suggest that these new innovations to the design of the high-rise, high-density typology have performed exceedingly well in providing satisfaction and comfort to the residents of two very different high-rise projects. High-rise buildings occupy a unique place in the urban landscape of Asia and this paper provides us with fresh understanding and knowledge to the performance of high-rise architecture in the tropics.
