contributed by nathanchoe

Bras Basah MRT subway station is an underground train station in the heart of the historic Civic District in Singapore. With a single strategy, the design resolves two conflicting requirements - the very deep station required a visual connection to the exterior to enhance the travel experience for the commuters; while the historic district and park location required a station that disappeared into the landscape. The strategy developed was to create a station roof that doubles up as a skylight and landscape element - a water filled glass skylight. Viewed from the park, it is a reflection pool, from the station platform, it is an immense skylight.
