New Orleans: Make It Right

e2 | PBS show

Summary: The Make It Right Foundation - founded by celebrity activist Brad Pitt - made history in storm-ravaged New Orleans by placing 150 pink symbolic homes in the city's hardest hit neighborhood, the Lower Ninth Ward. Each of Pitt's pink houses represents a sustainable home that will eventually be built in its place as money is raised by the foundation. Thirteen architects from around the world were recruited by Make It Right to design innovative, affordable, sustainable housing, which would also ensure the strongest protection possible against volatile weather.
