Abstract: As Singapore turns to underground solutions to relieve land pressure, themes for 21st century underground developments will include urban scale underground developments, seamless integration of aboveground and underground spaces and how surfaces could be activated. This paper examines Singapore’s current design strategies to interface ground and underground spaces. The focus of the paper is on underground spaces with direct connection to the surface environment, widely utilised by the general public. Building upon literature, physical traits such as spatial form, entrance, adjoining surfaces and relationship of the surface interfaces are identified and summarised into a theoretical framework. The framework will be used as a reference for field study. Case studies on the Orchard Underground Network, City Hall Underground Network and Bras Basah MRT station are documented through field study and post occupancy survey. The neural network approach is used to analyse the gathered data. Results provide an understanding on the potentials of the interface and inform of the current state of Singapore Interfaces, hence providing reference for future underground developments.
