We are honoured to have Mr. Harbinder Singh Birdi joining #mOOO5 Jury Panel!
Harbinder is a chartered architect and a member of the previous Architects’ Journal 40 under 40 list. He is a fellow of several esteemed organisations, including the Royal Institute of British Architects and the Institution of Civil Engineers, in recognition of his ongoing mentorship of new talent in architecture, and for his expertise in the design and delivery of major infrastructure projects.
Harbinder is currently delivering architectural designs for two of the UK’s largest infrastructure projects: Thames Tideway, and three new stations at Tottenham Court Road, Bond Street and Liverpool Street for Crossrail 1 The Elizabeth Line. He led the design for a £600 million upgrade of Tottenham Court Road station for London Underground and, in collaboration with Croydon Council, developed the innovative design for East Croydon station bridge – known as the first structure launched across an operational railway.
Harbinder also has extensive experience working with artists. At Tottenham Court Road he integrated the greatest-ever number of in-situ artworks within a London Underground station, collaborating with noted contemporary artists Daniel Buren, Douglas Gordon, and Richard Wright.
Bringing his expertise to a broader audience, Harbinder provides guidance on major infrastructure projects and public realm schemes as a member of the Mayor of London’s Infrastructure Advisory Panel and the HS2 Independent Design Review Panel, as well as sitting on design review panels for Camden, Croydon, Ealing, and Old Oak Common.
