Balancing his wider role within the company as Chief Executive, Mouzhan Majidi is responsible for a diverse range of airports, cultural, commercial, infrastructure, residential, leisure and education projects in Europe, the Far East and America. He joined Foster + Partners in 1987, and worked on a number of projects including Stansted Airport and Cambridge Law Faculty, and was the director in charge of Hong Kong International Airport and Wembley Stadium.
