Brad Pitt's First House Built....Finally part of his Make It Right campaign, which proposes more architectural experimentation on the poor and downtrodden...or at least to turn all their buildings PINK! Link.

I prefer the comments section:
While the project is certainly well-intended, the designs seem so out of touch with the recipients. It's hard to imagine that the people who will be living in these houses would actually choose these houses over the vernacular styles — the shotguns, camelbacks, and creole cottages — that for 100 years have meant home to this culturally-rich, close-knit, vibrant community now in tatters.
