Bras Basah MRT Station (CC2) is an underground Mass Rapid Transit station on the Circle MRT Line in the Museum Planning Area of Singapore. This station opened on 17 April 2010.[1]

HistoryEdit

The station was commissioned through the Marina Line Architectural Design Competition jointly organized by the Land Transport Authority and the 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 [2]

During the opening of the station in 17 April 2010, Transport Minister Raymond Lim, who officiated the opening, said : "The Circle Line will enhance the quality of commute for the public - connecting homes, workplaces and social and recreational destinations more quickly and seamlessly." He also added that the stations will connect commuters to the "doorsteps of major cultural destinations" like the Esplanade and Fort Canning Park.

Nearby buildingsEdit

The station is located near Singapore Art Museum and also it nearby to Waterloo Street and a few minutes walk to Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts it is also linked to the Singapore Management University and Plaza by the Park tower at concourse level, below Bras Basah Road.

ArchitectureEdit

The station is the deepest station of the Mass Rapid Transit system at 35 metres below ground and its island platform is located at basement 5. It is also the station with the longest escalator, at 41.3 metres. To let light into the station, a reflective pool of water with glass panels outside the Singapore Management University was created.

The LTA commissioned a video work 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.
