New Orleans, LA (AHN) - Hollywood actor Brad Pitt reveals that he was ’shocked’ upon surveying the remaining damage and destruction caused by Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans, almost a year after the storm hit.
In describing how he drove for miles and saw street after street of New Orleans, the actor says, “I was not prepared.”
The ‘Ocean’s Twelve’ actor was in New Orleans to give an update on a competition for ecologically sound designs in rebuilding neighborhoods that have been wrecked by the storm.
Pitt stated that the new designs, which use energy-saving materials such as metal roofing and recycled textiles, might not reflect the historic architecture that was once a part of New Orleans’ legacy.
“It’s impossible to replicate the past,” Pitt said, according to Yahoo News.
“The original designs are really good. They’re really efficient.” But, he said, “We can do better.”
I am all for using Pitt Power to get help in the region.
