Matthew Farr

Associate Principal, Architect / Hong Kong

Matt joined Populous in 2017. He shifted from an Institution and Education project portfolio focused on traditional project procurement and delivery. Since joining, Matt has been an integral team member for West Coast Eagles Training Facility in Perth, National Speed Skating Oval in Beijing, a project lead for Manuka Oval Media Centre in Canberra and most recently, a project lead for Kai Tak Sports Park in Hong Kong.

In 2019 Matt took on the role of Team Leader for the Public Sports Ground and then subsequently Indoor Sports Centre for the Kai Tak Sports Park Development in Hong Kong, relocating to Hong Kong for the project. This has involved intensive coordination and documentation management across regions as well as detailed discussions on-site in order to deliver the paramount project for Hong Kong. The building typology integrates a 10,000-seat arena, 500 seat warm-up sports hall as well as over 30,000m2 retail programme to support the burgeoning area of Hong Kong.
