Prof. Jason Pomeroy is an award winning architect and academic at the forefront of the Asian built environment green agenda. He graduated with distinction from the Canterbury School of Architecture before gaining a masters degree at Cambridge University. His research at Cambridge considered the socio-spatial functions of skycourts and skygardens within the vertical city model of the 21st century. He continues to pursue this vein of research in addition to that of carbon zero development.
Pomeroy joined the London office of Broadway Malyan in 2005 to lead the sustainable agenda, and in 2008 relocated to Singapore to establish what is now one of the most successful design practices in Asia. In 2010, Pomeroy founded Broadway Malyan’s Research and Development studio – a specialist group that bridges the gap between academia and professional practice by applying academic research to commercial projects in the interests of sustainability and innovation. Projects of note transcend scale and discipline and include the award winning Idea House: the first carbon zero prototype house in South East Asia; Vision Valley Malaysia: an 80,000 acre Network Garden City extension of Kuala Lumpur; the Green Plot Ration guidelines: a method that provides a quantifiable ecological measure to landscaping within the built environment, and continued research into the role of the skycourt and skygarden in the urban habitat.
In addition to co-directing the Singapore office, he lectures and publishes widely, and is the author of Idea House – the first carbon zero house in SE Asia. He is an adjunct professor at University Technologi Malaysia and Mapua Institute of Technology; and honorary professor of the Nottingham University. He also sits on the editorial board of the Council for Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat.
