Narinder Sagoo, who is Art Director at Foster + Partners, became a patron of The Big Draw in 2017.
"I have always drawn, as a child discovering the world around me, through studying at school as a way of find the fun & joy in learning, and as a designer where drawing has allowed me to imagine the unseen – the future"! Narinder Sagoo (2017).
Narinder is most well-known for his perspective drawings and his unique ability to grasp and visualise architectural visions. Working closely alongside Lord Foster and other Senior Partners, Narinder has been personally involved in all of the practice’s projects over a period of two decades.
Narinder joined Foster + Partners in 1996. In 2000, he became the youngest-ever associate at Foster + Partners, was made a project director the following year and was promoted to partner at the start of 2004. He is responsible for all artistic representations of projects, from sketch and drawing, digital painting through to photorealistic representation.
