    MTR Sunny Bay Station Wins HKIA Annual Merit Award


    Sunny Bay Station of the MTR Disneyland Resort Line has recently won a Hong Kong
    Institute of Architects (HKIA) Merit Award for its outstanding architecture. The HKIA
    Annual Awards introduced since 1965, are the most prestigious architectural awards
    in Hong Kong.
    Sunny Bay Station was opened in June 2005 and is an interchange station between
    the MTR’s Tung Chung Line and the Disneyland Resort Line. The station is also the
    starting point of the magical journey to the Hong Kong Disneyland at Penny’s Bay.
    The Disneyland Resort Line is the world’s first dedicated railway line for a Disney
    theme park.
    The HKIA Jury Panel believed that the elegant and lightweight roof membrane
    structure of the station is appropriate to the natural setting of the area.
    “The Corporation is pleased to learn that Sunny Bay station is one of the awarded
    projects from a total of 73 nominations for the HKIA 50
    th Anniversary Annual Awards
    2005,” said Mr. Malcolm Gibson, Chief Design Manager of MTR Corporation Limited.
    “Sunny Bay station uses contemporary language of a gentle curving fabric roof on a
    lightweight steel roof structure to create the gateway station to the Disneyland
    Resort Line. A clear and direct cross platform interchange has been provided under
    the dynamic curved fabric roof,” he added.
