Perkins+Will has appointed a new associate principal, director of architecture mixed-use and commercial, to be based in its Dubai office.

John Lister brings over 25 years of commercial architecture experience, including three years working in the UAE on retail, leisure, and hospitality developments.

His most recent portfolio projects include Kempinski Hotel Mall of the Emirates, Aldar’s Yas Mall Hotel, Emaar’s Signature Tower at Dubai Creek Harbour and Emaar South.

“My real professional passion is the retail sector. I actually enjoy shopping and the commercial and psychological dynamics of the retail experience,” he said.

“I see this as an opportunity as part of a forward-thinking company to do something different and inspirational in the retail sphere and further develop this side of the business.”

Lister studied in Manchester and has worked in the UK and US, before moving to the UAE.
