Angus Campbell has overseen some of our most complex and prestigious projects including Commerzbank, HSBC, Wembley Stadium, Lusail Stadium, Kings Cross Station, and Haramain High Speed Rail. During this time he has delivered transport infrastructure, masterplans and sports complexes. Currently he is working on the Jeddah Metro Transportation Plan, which includes the design of all modes of transport and the stations, with a phased strategy of how the implementation will inform the growth of the city over the next 200 years.
Angus Campbell is a joint deputy head of studio. He studied at Birmingham University and University College London, and joined the practice in 1990. During his time at Foster + Partners, he has worked on buildings and masterplans in over twenty countries. Early projects include the landmark HSBC tower in Canary Wharf, the International Rail Terminal at King’s Cross in London, and successful competition wins for the regeneration of Duisburg Harbour and the Commerzbank Headquarters in Germany. He was also project architect for the competition winning entry for a mixed-use development for the King Faisal Foundation in Riyadh, and the Sainsbury’s Headquarters at 33 Holborn Place, London.
Since 1998, he has developed a keen interest in sports architecture and was project architect for Wembley National Stadium. He became a project director in 2001, partner in 2004 and was made a senior partner in 2014, during which time he was responsible for a project to remodel FC Barcelona’s Camp Nou Stadium and the design of the new Lusail Stadium in Doha, the venue for the 2022 World Cup Final.
Recent projects include Anfa Place, a luxury mixed-use development in Casablanca, Morocco, Hermitage Plaza, a mixed-use high-density community in La Défense, Paris, and the new Vietinbank headquarters in Hanoi, Vietnam.
He has also developed a speciality in rail and infrastructure projects, which has seen him build on his early experience with the remodelling of St Pancras Station. Angus has led the design of the Haramain High Speed Rail project – a major infrastructure project conceived to forge new social and economic links by dramatically cutting journey times between the cities in western Saudi Arabia, and a new transport option for many of the pilgrims making the journey to the religious cities of Makkah and Madinah. He has also played a key role in the development of the Jeddah Metro Transportation Plan, which included the design and implementation of a comprehensive public transportation system for the city that brings together the strategic masterplan for how the city should grow over the next two centuries. The scope of the project included the design of 90 metro stations, 200 light rail and bus rapid transit stations, 20 ferry ports, 500 bus stops, all developed as a modular design that allows for the future development of areas around each of the stations. The modular design has provided Metro Jeddah with the opportunity to split the project into a number of separate PPP’s.
Angus is currently working on Sydney Metro, which includes the design of integrated underground stations and over site development for 6 key locations in the centre of Sydney.
