Privato Ortigas
The Privato Ortigas Hotel is a high-rise building with small square glass windows on its upper 2/3. Its lower 1/3 with a larger area has a branching plant-like design in front, which seems to be made of metal. The side of the building visible in this photo has recesses at every floor on the upper 2/3 containing what appears to be external parts of airconditioning units. The side of the lower 1/3 is a flat concrete wall as if it's a firewall. 706 Shaw Boulevard, Kapitolyo, Pasig
MCC Center

Asian Century Center
The Asian Century Center is a mid-rise building with a blocky appearance. Its appearance can be described as alternating rows of concrete walls and viewing ports. The upper floors have viewing ports made of glass windows, while the lower levels, except the ground floor, have viewing ports made of steel railings through which the support columns are visible. Plants in the foregrounds cover the ground floor, but its glass walls are still visible. A gray diagonal steel beam covers what appears to be a high ceiling floor between the topmost floor with steel railings and the lowest floor with glass windows. This diagonal steel bends upward and covers a small part of the floors with glass windows extending to the top of the building. This picture was shot while standing across 3rd Avenue near the curved passage connecting it to Rizal Drive. 27th St. cor 4th Ave., Bonifacio Global City, Taguig
