Make It Right, the organization founded by Brad Pitt to provide housing to those in need, has unveiled 5 designs for their new initiative in the Fort Peck Indian Reservation in Montana. The designs - by GRAFT, Sustainable Native Communities Collaborative, Architecture for Humanity, Method Homes and Living Homes - are inspired by cradle-to-cradle principles, will be LEED Platinum rated and have been developed alongside community consultation with the Sioux and Assiniboine tribes of Fort Peck. The organization is planning to build 20 new homes on the reservation, as well as developing a sustainable masterplan for the entire 3,300 square mile reservation, with construction planned to start later this year. More on the development of Make It Right's Fort Peck initiative after the break. The Fort Peck Reservation is home to over 6,000 Native Americans; more than 600 of these are on the waiting list for housing, and overcrowding is a chronic problem. The 3-4 bedroom homes provided by Make It Right will be available to those whose income levels are at or below 60% of the Area Median. View more View full description
