BRAD PITT, NEW ORLEANS RESIDENTS LAUNCH REBUILDING CAMPAIGN
***HOW MAY STEPS TO REBUILD NEW ORLEANS?
The group of Make it Right and its Community of Relief Workers ans Volunteers settled on the goal of constructing 150 homes.
Make It Right construction is underway in the Lower 9th Ward. The first 6 homes are completed and displaced Lower 9th Ward families now call these Make It Right houses "home."
In December 2006, Brad Pitt convened a group of experts in New Orleans to brainstorm about building green affordable housing on a large scale to help victims of Hurricane Katrina. Having spent time with community leaders and displaced residents determined to return home, Pitt realized that an opportunity existed to build houses that were not only stronger and healthier, but that had less impact on the environment.
Previously, Pitt sponsored an architecture competition organized by Global Green with the goal of generating ideas about how to rebuild sustainably. Several of those designs are currently under construction in the Lower 9th Ward and the project inspired him to expand his efforts.
After discussing the hurdles associated with rebuilding in a devastated area, the group determined that a large-scale redevelopment project focused on green affordable housing and incorporating innovative design was indeed possible.
The group settled on the goal of constructing 150 homes (one of the larger rebuilding projects in the city), with an emphasis on developing an affordable system that could be replicated.
