Eco-architect, masterplanner and academic Prof. Jason Pomeroy loves the distinct sights and sounds of Asia. As a frequent traveller, Jason often finds moments of timelessness tucked away in the old quarters of the cities he visits. In brand new business districts, he often gets an adrenaline rush seeing impressive cityscapes taking shape.

Let eco-architect Jason Pomeroy be your guide to the great cities of Asia. From colonial architecture in Singapore and Mumbai to indigenous architecture in Bhutan and ultra-modern Shanghai, Jason travels the continent to find structures that have stood the test of time, and discovers that to design for the future, we must learn from the past.

In the latest City Time Traveller Series, Jason visits 6 different cities across Asia. He begins his journey in Manila where he relives the colossal reminder of the Spanish colonial days. In Kuala Lumpur, Jason uncovers the country’s quest for its architecture identity. Next up, while in India, he examines the lasting legacy of the British India in Kolkata and pays tribute to the architecture of Sikhism in Amritsar. Jason meets the movers and shakers of Shanghai who shape the financial district, and in his final destination of Bhutan, he examines the values of Bhutanese architecture set in the last remaining commune of nature and God. 

Breathtaking, insightful and intelligent, “City Time Traveller 2” connects history, cultures and everyday life through the definitive aesthetics of architecture.
