Tan Kah Kee Station | Singapore
The underground transit station Tan Kah Kee serves as a stop to local tourist
attractions and schools such as Hwa Chong Institution. The station is not just
a means of transportation but rather a part of life for hundreds of commuters.
The modern station features white a3 CeramicSteel panels
throughout as well as brightly colored yellow, orange and red panels that were
inspired by the element of fire. The artwork Resilience, which is located at
the entrance of the station, is composed of colorful handwritten text by
students of Hwa Chong Institution. When viewed from a distance the text
dissolves into an abstract blazing sun. Adjacent stations King Albert and Sixth Avenue were also inspired by the natural elements of air and water, respectively.
The artwork was printed in Genk, Belgium using PolyVision’s state of the art
