Jason Pomeroy

 

In 2012, Pomeroy established the design company Pomeroy Studio in Singapore and, since then, he has created sustainable designs for cities, buildings, landscapes and for interiors.

He has become a leading architecture in the field of sustainable design and lectures world-wide, most recently at the University of Cambridge.

“There is a lot of thinking embedded in old buildings. They were adapted to their respective climate and are often built in local materials that take into account social sustainability,” Jason Pomeroy says.

The lecture is in English. Free admission
