Make It Right

Brad Pitt's philanthropy has turned to New Orleans, where he is spearheading an architectural project focused on building sustainable, safe homes in the city's Lower Ninth Ward. Local, national, and international architects developed designs for the foundation, appropriately named Make It Right. This is amongst the largest of the rebuilding efforts in New Orleans, but it is unique in its focus on high quality design coupled with affordability and green practices. The green building elements used in the designs are expected to reduce upkeep costs by an incredible 75%.
