Brad Pitt Leaves
Angelina Jolie and Daughter At Home To Announce The Finalists of
Architectural Energy Saving Contest In New Orleans
July 15th 2006
Brad Pitt traveled to New Orleans to get an update on the
new project he hopes will help the environment by saving energy.
The Global Green USA organization has been working with the actor on
an architectural project. Although the new designs do not reflect
the historic architecture of the city, Pitt believes it is time to
look towards the future.
The actor was not prepared for what he saw, according to
Access Hollywood. The actor said “I was not prepared” for the
hurricane’s devastation. These designs give the actor hope that
something good can come from the disaster, primarily a motivation to
develop new energy saving buildings.
Entertainment tonight "It is our hope that this competition will
generate and uncover new and innovative ideas which will advance the
practicalities of responsible architecture, as well as spark a long
overdue rebuilding effort for the people of New Orleans," said the
star in a statement. “The competition asks the question, 'Can this
catastrophe be turned into an opportunity? Can we create for these
neighborhoods and its families something even better than they had
before?' We encourage anyone with an idea to get involved."
