Two in one

One building, two uses. Two entrances, two lobbies, one atrium, one skylight. The corridors of Discovery Suites, the hotel, are open to the atrium. Those of the office levels are covered in glass. The building is named the Discovery Center and is in Ortigas Center, Pasig City.

atrium and skylight of Discover Center and Discovery Suites
P.S. It's evening and we're at the lobby looking straight up the atrium to the skylight.

very, very cool photo. it looks like time travel tube. Also, thanks for your comments about Skysong. It is much better than a mall and I like your description about the abstract tipi look it has

Cool angle.

I had to think a bit to understand this image: really amazing, perfectly framed and lighted.
I also checked the site: with 7 advance purchase I could have a suite for 150 US Dollars.

moi qui est le vertige, ta photo me fait tourner la tête.....superbe perspective, attention de ne pas tomber dans l'infini.

My vertigo is, your photo makes me turn my head ..... superb perspective, careful not to fall into infinity.
