Andrew James

Director | Senior Principal / Singapore, Beijing, New Delhi

Andrew leads the company’s work in the Asian region, having lived and worked there for the past 25 years. He has overseen projects in China, Indonesia, the Philippines, Taiwan, Korea, India, Singapore, Hong Kong, Malaysia and Thailand; and is a Director of the Asia-Pacific board.

“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 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.”
