• Greening urban habitats for the 21st century city

    6 November 2013

    The incorporation of skycourts and skygardens into developments is no longer a gimmick or trend, but a quintessential element within the urban vocabulary of the 21st century city according to Pomeroy Studio founding principal, Jason Pomeroy.

    Over 100 guests recently gathered on the sky terrace at the Park Royal hotel, Singapore, for an evening hosted by Esquire magazine and Heineken to celebrate the launch of his new book, ‘The Skycourt and Skygarden: Greening the Urban Habitat’.

    Pomeroy, who was one of the featured ‘Heineken Ministry of Mavens’ in the August issue of Esquire, is one of the world’s leading authorities on skycourts and skygardens and has for the past 10 years researched the social, spatial, economic, environmental, cultural and technological attributes of such sky-rise social spaces around the world.

    His latest book, with a foreword by eco-architect Ken Yeang, and published by leading academic publishing house, Routledge, brings together his research into one concise volume, due for global release in October.
