Andrew Noonan

Senior Architect | Australia / Brisbane

Andrew first joined Populous in London in 2007 as part of the Aviva Stadium team in Ireland and worked on the project through the design development and construction documentation phases. Following his return from London, Andrew completed the schematic design and overlay planning for a number of venues for Australia’s FIFA World Cup Bid 2018/2022 and concept design for the Sleeman Sports Complex outdoor pool and BMX track.

Andrew moved to Sydney and re-joined Populous in 2013 to work on the $1B ICC Sydney – a 250,000sqm convention, exhibition and theatre venue in the heart of Darling Harbour. Andrew was the Design Leader on the ICC Theatre, an 8,000 seat Live Music Venue.

Andrew and colleague Matt Reynolds were awarded the Populous Fellowship in 2014, providing them with the opportunity to conduct global research on the future of Live Music Venues, completing their tour of North American venues in 2015.

Following his role on the ICC Theatre in Sydney, Andrew worked in the Populous Delhi office on the Bhubaneswar Convention Centre and other projects before relocated to the Populous London studio to work on a number of projects in the Middle East, including his role as Project Lead for the Al-Baha Stadium as part of the ambitious King Abdullah Program for Sport Stadia and the lead for the remediation works to the King Abdullah Stadium in Jeddah. Andrew was also part of the design team for the Fourth Precinct Stadium for the Qatar World Cup, where he was responsible for developing the legacy mode proposal for the stadium following the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
