Bras Basah (CC2) is an underground Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) station on the Circle Line.

History

Date Event
17 April 2010 Station officially opens

The station was commissioned through the Marina Line Architectural Design Competition jointly organized by Land Transport Authority and Singapore Institute of Architects. The competition required no track record and is acknowledged by the industry as one of the best run competitions held in Singapore to date.

In 2009, "Best Transport Building" was awarded to the designers at WOHA Architects at the World Architecture Festival.[1]

Architecture

The station is 35 metres below ground and its platforms is located at basement 5. It was the deepest station from its opening until 22 December 2013 when the Downtown Line at Promenade station was completed. It is also the station with the longest escalator, at 41 metres which stretches from the ticket concourse to the transfer level and takes approximately one minute to travel.[2]

To let light into the station, a reflective pool of water with glass panels outside Singapore Management University was created.

Art in Transit

A video work was commissioned for the Art in Transit for this station. It is presented in 29 units of sound and images, forming a narrative of an action figure caught in a Chain of Wonderful Underwater Adventures. It is displayed in the evening at the concourse level of the station.
