Following Hurricane Katrina, actor Brad Pitt formed a foundation to help rebuild the Ninth Ward in New Orleans.
These are two houses being built by his foundation. The yellow one is a typical New Orleans Ninth Ward style home and the other two are supposedly environment friendly and hurricane proof. August 29 will mark the third anniversary since Katrina destroyed this neighborhood and swept away most of the houses in a tidal surge from the broken canal walls of the Industrial Canal.
Dozens of workers have swarmed in to get the houses completed for the Third Anniversary on August 29.
And, no, there are no architectural or building errors here. Each architect designed the house to be energy efficient and built to drain rainwater to be used in the gardens. We'll see how the people who receive them take care of them and appreciate the design.
