Tampines East & West Station - Downtown Line 3 | Tampines, Singapore

Contemporary art fills the interior of the Tampines East & West Stations in Singapore. With the Land Transport Authority’s (LTA) innovative program, “Art in Transit” (AIT), these stations were transformed into a place where art tells the story of those who live in Tampines. Artist Jing Quek used this urban city as inspiration for the mixture of imagery and photography, patterns, shapes, and colors – quite literally. In one mural located in the metro station, Quek created a panorama of local geography and over 250 residents, expanding in detail as an observer moves closer. The ability to curate a continuous and fluid visual was made possible with the use of 38 CeramicSteel panels with hidden joints. The smooth collaboration amongst PolyVision, LTA, architects, and contractors helped to create a space that the local community and other visitors can truly be proud of.
