Metro Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall
Station is located in the Zhongzheng
District of Taipei, Taiwan
. It is a transfer station on the Tamsui Line and the Xindian/Xiaonanmen Branch Lines. While the memorial for which the station is named was embroiled in a naming dispute, the name of the station has remained unchanged.
The station is a three-level, underground structure with two island platforms and seven exits. The two platforms are stacked on top of one another, allowing for cross-platform interchange. The washrooms are outside the entrance area. The station is situated under Roosevelt Road, between Nanhai Road, Linsen South Road, and Aiguo East Road.
When completed in 2013, the station will be a transfer station with the Songshan
Line. It is also a planned terminus for the Wanda-Shulin Line.
The station is home to several public art pieces. By the escalators connecting the two platform levels, a piece titled "Metamorphosis" displays a holographic flight trajectory of a paper plane. Along some of the entrance hallways, "Musical Skies" shows light boxes with images clouds in a blue sky. On the upper platform in "Platform, Stage", elements from Taiwanese folk arts and Chinese opera have been transformed into abstract elements and minimized into two curtains of lines and flat surfaces.
