Stadium MRT Station

This project won an open international architectural competition for an underground train station at the Singapore National Stadium. The scheme, addressed the particular stadium issues of surge crowds and crowd holding areas by placing the unpaid areas at ground level, and providing a public plaza. The unusual half-underground station suggested a gorge or canyon. Inflected by the curve of the stadium, and reminiscent of a Richard Serra sculpture, the station is clad in custom-crafted louvres that create a shimmering complex surface like a textile or sedimentary rock.
