Few people know Brad Pitt is an architecture buff: he interned with architecture superstar Frank Gehry, mastermind of the weird swoopy museums popping up everywhere, which we don’t necessarily like that much but we don’t go to museums anyway so it doesn’t matter. Wait, what were we writing about? Oh yes–
Pitt has announced he’s sponsoring an architecture contest for New Orleans, designing environmentally-friendly homes in the hurricane-devastated areas of the city. Super cool, we think. Considering the city has made zero progress in the seven months since the hurricane, we’re glad Bradley is getting something done.
For pics of the hurricane, take a look at the Big Gay Road Trip: New Orleans. These pics were taken a few weeks ago.
