Actor: A Design Competition For New Orleans

Actor Brad Pitt is frustrated by the slowness in rebuilding New Orleans, so he’s sponsoring an “environmentally-friendly” design competition. “Our goal is to kick off the rebuilding effort. It’s certainly long overdue and I can only go from the reports that we get … that it’s behind, absolutely. People are frustrated. We could possibly build something that was better and took into account the historical traditions of the city and the voices of the people and turn this into some kind of good.”
