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.
Be it futuristic structures or historical monuments, Jason uncovers a rich tapestry of colours, shapes and motifs. They reveal a fascinating story unique to these cities. And these stories are what Jason is passionate about sharing.
In City Time Traveller Season 2, 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.
