we're loving brad pitt's green new orleans housing project

We must say that we love the way the home design community is stepping up to create affordable, sustainable housing for New Orleans’ recovery. First there was the adorable Lowe’s Katrina Cottage Series, and now comes this amazingly chic, green house from the Holy Cross Project. Global Green, in partnership with Brad Pitt, and with sponsorship by Home Depot, held a sustainable design competition last year and selected this entry from Matthew Berman and Andrew Kotchen of Workshop/APD in New York as the winner. The house comes complete with water cisterns, solar panels, reclaimed wood floors, and more savvy things. Construction is already underway.
