Brad Pitt Rebuilds New Orleans

Brad_pitt_new_orleans_design_contest_4Maybe it's his friendship with Frank Gehry, or his passion for architecure -- or maybe it's the impending birth of his first child with Angelina Jolie. Whatever the reason, Brad Pitt is working towards rebuilding a crippled New Orleans.

Pitt and environmental organization Global Green USA are sponsoring the Sustainable Design Competition for New Orleans, a contest to find an Earth-friendly plan for housing and community centers in Hurricane Katrina ravaged neighborhoods.

“This competition asks the question, 'Can this catastrophe be turned into opportunity?' Can we create for these neighborhoods and their families something even better than they had before?"

Pitt, who will serve as chairman of the jury when the winner is selected in August, developed the contest with Global Green president Matt Petersen.
