Calling All Designers: Brad Pitt Wants You

13Jun06


Ah, nothing beats styling celeb, environmental advocate and architecture buff Brad Pitt to help generate media interest in green design. Back in April, Brad and national environmental organization Global Green USA teamed up to sponsor a eco-design competition to rebuild parts of New Orleans devastated by Katrina and create beautiful, sustainable livable homes and cities. Pritzker prize-winning architect Thomas Mayne of Morphosis has even been plucked as a juror.

There are three days lefts to sign up for the competition (registration is easy). The registration deadline has been extended to this Friday, June 16. General Entrance Fee is $100 or $25 for students. It’s an opportunity to challenge your best design thinking for a great cause, design and build a piece of history, or a chance to meet Brad Pitt or Thom Mayne (whichever floats your boat).

To register or donate to the green rebuilding in the wake of Katrina visit Global Green.

    It’s interesting that Brad Pitt has branched out into the interior design profession, and has his own design business. Brad seems to have flair in this field, just like he does as an actor. I guess he’s just talented all round. I haven’t used his firm because its services are really aimed at mega-rich people! I have had very happy experiences with Domane – they are an excellent firm of interior designe who do very impressive interio. I have worked with them and they are highly professional and full of ideas:
