The United States faces two immense and inextricable challenges: how to reimagine the American way of life to address the impacts of climate change, and how to build a new and robust economic structure that offers viable and sustainable livelihoods and lifestyles across the income spectrum for all Americans. The Architectural League has launched The Five Thousand Pound Life—an initiative of public events, digital releases, and a national design study—as a contribution to what must be a broad collective effort spanning geographies, generations, occupations, disciplines, and ideologies to address those intertwined challenges.

To present a vast scope of relevant issues with navigational and conceptual clarity, content is grouped here into themes of Economics & Investment, Engagement & Practice, Design & Technology, and Communication & Ethics. Visit these 5KL theme pages using the links below to find a range of content from different vantage points. Also included are an essay introducing the 5KL initiative, documentation from ongoing events, and more.

Part 1: Introduction

An overview of The League’s program that fosters and supports new ways of thinking, acting, and talking about our economic and environmental future.

Part 2: Perspectives on our changing climate

Participants from 5KL events share their perspectives on our environmental and economic future.

Part 3: Economics & Investment

In the first part of our curated digital series, we focus on the core connection between our individual and collective channeling of resources and the carbon byproducts of economic exchange.

Part 4: Engagement & Practice

The second part of our curated digital series is an exploration of democratic citizenship and decision-making within, and outside of, the confines of professional practice.

Part 5: Design & Technology

The third installment of our digital publication series is an inquiry into the relationship between the iterative process of design and technological advancement in our pursuit of prosperity.

Part 6: Communication & Ethics

The fourth and final part of our Five Thousand Pound Life digital series fosters an understanding our relationships with, and responsibilities to, other individuals, communities, nations, and generations.
