Andrew James

Andrew is a director and shareholder of Populous and leads the company’s work in the Asian region


He has lived and worked in Asia for the last 25 years, overseeing projects in China, Indonesia, Philippines, Taiwan, Korea, India, Singapore, Hong Kong, Malaysia and Thailand.


"While I love the speed and vitality of Asia, what I find most fascinating are the unique differences in the business cultures of each country in the region. No two cultures are the same. My job is to understand the effect those cultural differences have on the design of our buildings, and the way we work. Populous is a global company and our specialist skills are dispersed across the whole world. I am the conduit between the unique demands of our clients in the Asian region and the global skill base of Populous, bringing the best of our global knowledge to each project we work on.”


Andrew has been working in Korea for the last 12 years including leading the winning design competitions for the Incheon Asian Games stadium and the groundbreaking NC Dinos new baseball stadium in Changwon.
