Bras Basah (CC2) is a Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) station on the Circle Line. It is the second deepest station with a depth of 35m below ground level. It also houses the longest escalator, at 41 m which stretches from the ticket concourse to the transfer level and takes approximately one minute to travel.[1]

    The artist plays the protagonist, Desyphus, a “Perpetual Commuter” on an adventure on the Circle Line. The videos projected on the wall below the station’s water-filled glass skylight takes commuters through themes of travel, time, memory and the train line.[2]

Architecture[edit]

The station design by WOHA resolves two conditions needed for the station: allowing a visual connection to the exterior to enhance the travel experience for the commuters, and enabling the station to blend into the landscape in the historic district and park location. A reflection pool, which also acts as the station roof, allows skylight to enter the station, and functions as a landscape element on the surface. With skylight entering the station, minimal artificial light is required for the station during the day. The natural light allows improvement in way-finding and safety for the commuters.[3] The ventilation shafts of the station also blended into the landscape, avoiding any blocking of view lines across the site to the surrounding civic buildings.[4]

The station design was commissioned through the Marina Line Architectural Design Competition jointly organised by the Land Transport Authority (LTA) and the Singapore Institute of Architects (SIA). At the 2001 SIA Awards, the SIA awarded LTA the prize for ‘Excellence in Architectural Design Competitions’.[1] In 2009, the station was awarded the "Best Transport Building" at the World Architecture Festival, on the basis that the design gives "precedence to the surrounding, historically important, colonial structures, creating a piazza-like urban space to the station underneath" and noted the design's functionality to allow natural light into the station.[5] The station later won the Award for International Architecture at the AIA's 2010 National Architecture Awards.[3] In addition, it won the Chicago Athenaeum and the European Centre for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies and International Architecture Awards in 2011.[6]
