Prof. Pomeroy’s expertise in the field of sustainable design, and in particular his research interests in ‘zero energy development’, ‘greening the urban habitat’ and ‘a vertical urban theory’, has resulted in a number of book chapter contributions in research journals and books.

The Monocle Travel Guide Series
Monocle ―the magazine that covers urbanism and city design like no other ―knows about the hidden gems in all the great cities.

Its deep understanding of cities, and all they have to offer, has now been compiled in The Monocle Travel Guide Series.
