Join us in New York on Saturday February 7th, 1 pm to 7pm, for The Five Thousand Pound Life: Water.

Organized and presented by the Architectural League of NY and Cooper Union, the symposium focusses on water supply in the context of climate change.  What’s the relationship between water supply, water’s energy and carbon intensity, and the design of cities—in Los Angeles?  In the Great Lakes Region? and in New York?  We’re delighted to be part of the conversation, and hope you will join us if you are in the area.

The Five Thousand Pound Life is an initiative of The Architectural League of New York on new ways of thinking and acting on architecture, climate change, and our economic future. The February 7th symposium will be focused on issues of water supply in the context of climate change.


Speakers include: Al Appleton, Hadley Arnold, Peter Arnold, Maria Arquero de Alarcón, Ila Berman, Kevin Bone, Rosalie Genevro, Henry L. Henderson, Jen Maigret, Peter Mulvaney, Josh Newell, Stephanie Pincetl, and James Wescoat
