Small surprise: Marina Bay MRT Station, Singapore by Aedas.

Small surprise: Marina Bay MRT Station, Singapore by Aedas

Photos: Aedas / World Architecture Festival

In the Small Projects category of  the World Architecture Festival 2012 was the Marina Bay Station in Singapore by Aedas, Hong Kong.

An outstanding feature of the station is the lovely ETFE clad canopy over a pool of water that helps to moderate the micro climate and admit natural light into the station entrance. The strong architectural identity was designed to add a unique and recognizable structure marking a gateway to the new Central Business District.

The station serves as an interchange to connect the North-South Line with the new Circle Line. It also provides connections to the underground pedestrian network, and maintenance facilities, as well as scope for future expansion.

Back of house elements such as ventilation exhausts and emergency exits were all carefully controlled and situated in recessed locations or below eye level so as not to interfere with the surrounding park landscape.
