Bravo Brad!

Not only is he picking up orphans left and right, involved with another powerhouse of a movie star, but he's knee-deep in efforts to rebuild and stabilize New Orleans. More accurately should I say, keep New Orleans "Afloat".
Brad Pitt's Make It Right Foundation has teamed up with Morphosis Archtitects and UCLA architect students to design and construct floating houses. In the case of unforeseen floods will use their foundation as rafts.

Very admirable on part of Brad Pitt and very ingenious on part of the architects and students involved. They even came up with a very clever name for it: FLOAT house. get it!?

They don't even look that offense, but what happens when all the houses float away and crash into each other and sink? I'm not saying this to be mean, I'm truly curious if the houses will be connected in any way to the ground, allowing them to rise with the water, but be tethered down. Similar to that of a buoy. Just a thought.
