Brad Pitt's Global Green Home

Brad Pitt looks over Global Green’s sustainable, low-income home before a milestone celebration in the Lower Ninth Ward of New Orleans, Louisiana on Tuesday. This neighborhood was completely leveled when Hurricane Katrina hit two years ago. (See Part II of this set of pictures here.)

Earlier today, it was announced that Brad will sit down for another exclusive interview with NBC’s Jolie-Pitt family correspondent Ann Curry, airing Wednesday and Thursday on The Today Show.

    Here’s the article – I figured you wouldn’t take the time to find it. Not sure you or anyone on this thread will even bother reading it – truth is not what you are looking for

    Thanks for posting. Having grown up in N.O., I must admit I wasn’t happy with the design. There were others I liked better. But it’s not like people have a whole lot of options. New Orleans citizens are still living in those small FEMA trailers and it’s HORRENDOUS that a major, HISTORICAL city is left to flounder like N.O. has been. It breaks my heart.

    b/c they didn`t leave city together.

    Angie was still working when Brad left. She could have flown to NO, when she left Chicago.We really have no idea, But I’m sure it’s a strong possibility.

  • Alicia

    Brad and Ange really should do a Becks and Vix style photo spread (like the recent W mag shoot) that would be soooo hott! Can you imagine Brad in his tighty whiteys laying on top of Angie? That would be pure sex!!

    ewwwww, I hope Brad and Angie NEVER do photo shoot like that!

    Brad and Angie don’t need to put it all out there to be hot and sexy — their W Shoot 2005 was freaking hoty and they didn’t even have to try.

  • Barbara

    Angelina and kids are not here (NO) but I can tell you one thing for certain. If nothing else Brad has been here for the long haul. People can agree or disagree with him but he’s bringing attention to an area that needs it desperately.

    He and Angelina own a home in the French Quarter which also proves their commitment. If they only show up one week a year the paparazzi come and take their pictures and eat in our restaurants and sleep in our motels and the rest of the world can see the life goes on. Or as we say “Laissez les bons temps rouler!”

    Thanks Jared!!!!

    I can’t post when I am looking at so many pictures from so many sites.

    What a wonderful man, what a wonderful womand and what a wonderful family.

    Please ignore the trolls you know what their agenda is. Reposponding to them never has and never will change a thing. All it will accomplishes is ruin out thread which is exactly what they want… It is killing them so they lash out in anger, so let them just stew in anger and jealousy…

  • Brad the architect

    Brad should have been an architect. He seems to come alive when he is at

    a construction zone. I wonder why he even majored in journalism in

    college! Architecture seems to be his passion.

    Brad Pitt tours green project in New Orleans’ 9th Ward

    By STACEY PLAISANCE
    Associated Press Writer

    NEW ORLEANS Brad Pitt toured the site of an environmentally friendly home being built in New Orleans’ hard-hit Lower 9th Ward based on the winning design in a competition launched by the actor a year ago to help the area recover from Hurricane Katrina.

    Wearing khaki pants, a T-shirt and hard hat, Pitt walked through the partially constructed home Tuesday, pointing out its many “green” features, including blue walls treated with a non-toxic repellant for mold and termites.

    “There’s light coming in from all sides and a lot of ventilation,” said Pitt, standing in what will be the living room of the house. “A lot of thought has gone into this house.”

    The three-bedroom, single-family home is the first of five slated for the Holy Cross section of the Lower 9th Ward based on the winning design in a competition launched in 2006 by Pitt and the environmental organization Global Green USA.

    The winning design, submitted by Matthew Berman and Andrew Kotchen of Workshop APD in New York, includes energy saving appliances, a cistern, toilets designed for water conservation, soy-based insulation, paperless drywall, solar panels and a roof on the second-story deck designed to help insulate the house and channel water to the cistern.

    The house is also designed to relieve some of the burden of bills for low-income families, the predominant residents of the Lower 9th Ward before Katrina. Pitt said electric bills will be cut by 75 percent; water use, by half.

    Developers broke ground on the home in May and should be finished in the next month or two. It will serve as a model home and visitor center while construction of other houses is under way. Besides the single-family homes, plans call for an 18-unit apartment complex and community center.

    Global Green plans to sell the homes, giving preference to former residents of the neighborhood.

    Pitt and Angelina Jolie purchased an early-1830s masonry mansion in the French Quarter for $3.5 million in January.

    “There’s so much of this culture here that is unlike any other city that we have,” he said. “It’s a feeling that I can’t quite explain, but I love being a part of it.”

    He expressed disappointment at the slow pace of recovery in much of the city.

    “We can’t ignore the fact that we’ve got to push to get these levees taken care of and correct the engineering mistakes of the past and get these wetlands taken care of for this city,” he said. “It is something I’m quite aware of and wish to remain vocal about.”

    He said he, Jolie and their children would tour the Holy Cross site privately.

    Hi Coal – apropos of this thread and your birthday, here’s a quotation from one of the great modern architects of the 2oth century:

    “Youth is a circumstance you can’t do anything about. The trick is to grow up without getting old.” by: Frank Lloyd Wright

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU COAL AND MANY MORE!!!

    Guli – did you receive my e-mail address from Jared? Anyway, good-luck with the school prep for your daughter….

    Hi MF (Missouri Fan) – It sounds like your birthday celebration was a great success. I hope, next year will be a bigger one for you….Do you want to come to NY when Brad starts shooting his new film? I don’t know how to stalk, but, I can certainly learn….

    OT:
