Jan 04 2008. New Orleans, Louisiana. Lower 9th Ward.
The 'Pink Project' in association with Brad Pitt. The still devastated and desolate Lower 9th Ward. Almost totally destroyed by Hurricane Katrina, this is where actor Brad Pitt envisioned 'Make it Right,' inviting architects' from all over the world to submit plans to help rebuild the Lower 9th ward. The 'Pink Project' in association with Graft architects of Los Angeles placed pink structures throughout the neighbourhood to help draw attention to the plight of the area. The 'houses' are lit at night using solar energy stored during the day. Over 1,000 mini solar lights are scattered on the ground, representing the approximate 1,600 victims of Hurricane Katrina.
