The Taipei Metro Daan Park Station is a metro station on the Red Line located beneath Xinyi Rd, Sec. 3 between Xinsheng South Rd. and Jianguo South Rd. in Daan District, Taipei, Taiwan.[2] It is located at the northern end of the Daan Forest Park for which it is named after. The station was opened on 24 November 2013.[3]

Station overview[edit]

Station lobby at night

The two-level, underground station with an island platform. It has a naturally-lit hall and sunken garden.[4] The naturally-lit hall has two light towers and a light hallway. The sunken garden connects to the hall and has a ring-shaped corridor, pond, cascade and a circular plaza.[5] The station also has an underground parking lot.

An earlier draft for the station's design did not include the waterfall and sunken, ring-shaped corridor design,[6] though it still maintained the sunken plaza within the station lobby.[7]

Construction[edit]

The station is 226 m (741 ft) long and 22 m (72 ft) wide. Excavation depth is at 19 m (62 ft). It has six entrances, three elevators for the disabled and two vent shafts.[2] One of the entrances is integrated into a joint development building. The 34-story building is incorporated into Exit D and was completed in December 2010.[8] Due to station construction, old banyan trees originally planted on the sidewalk along Xinyi Road were replanted elsewhere within the park.[9]

Design[edit]

The design theme for the station is "Forest Revolution: the City and Park Conversing".[10]
