Early life and careerEdit
Harbour was born in 1962 in Irvine, Scotland. However he was brought up in the West Country. Harbour joined the Richard Rogers Partnership in 1985 after studying architecture at the Bartlett School of Architecture, University College London,  where he obtained a Bachelor of Science degree (BSc (Hons)) during 1980-83 and a Diploma in Architecture (Dipl. Arch.) in 1985.
During 1983 he joined Yorke Rosenberg Mardall (YRM) as part of his studies and in 1984-85 he was with the London Borough of Hackney. After his studies he joined the Richard Rogers Partnership in 1985 and was made a director of in 1993. In 1998 he was made a director of the practice and by 2007 the name of the practice changed from Richard Rogers Partnership to Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners. In 2011 he was made a senior partner in the firm.
The Guardian's Charlotte Higgins described Harbour's work, in comparison with fellow partner Graham Stirk, to be "more expressive and sculptural" such as Madrid airport's brightly coloured Terminal 4.
When Harbour joined Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners in 1985, he started as part of a team working on the Richard Rogers Lloyd's building in London. He has gone on to lead design teams on the European Court of Human Rights building, the Bordeaux Law Courts,  and winning the Stirling Prize for the practice in 2006 and 2009 for Terminal 4 of Madrid-Barajas Airport and Maggie's Centre, London respectively.
