We have told you in the past about Brad Pitt´s Make It Right Foundation. They have been working with a group of international architects to redevelop the Lower 9th Ward in New Orleans, after hurricane Katrina. The name of the foundation addresses the desire of Pitt, architecture enthusiast, to design these houses the best way and not just as a temporary solution, in a process that also included working not only with these renowned firms, but also very close with the community, with a focus on sustainable development.
At Make it Right, they submitted their idea to the Pepsi Refresh Project. The most voted idea will receive $250,000. If Make It Right would receive this grant, the money will go towards continuing to help build affordable, sustainable, high-designed and storm resistant homes for families in the Lower Ninth Ward. So click here to vote for their idea and help them carry out this great project!
