Description

The Skycourt and Skygarden: Greening the Urban Habitat This presentation will explore the design of social-communal spaces and gardens at height in the city, often in tall buildings, and how Professor Jason Pomeroy envisions the future city as incorporating a broader multi-level urban infrastructure. Skycourts and skygardens are examining in terms of their social, cultural, economic, spatial and environmental performance and a multitude of case studies are discussed.

Jason will also be presenting and signing his latest book<http://www.amazon.co.uk/The-Skycourt-Skygarden-Greening-habitat/dp/041563699X

> which is on the same topic. Copies will be available at the lecture for a 15% discount.
