Brad Pitt Architect

I know John Cougar sang about it but now someone has built it. To help rebuild part of New Orleans devastated by hurricanes someone has dropped some Pink Houses into the neighbourhood. It is an installation you may participate in and could even bump shoulders with one of it's founders Mr.Pitt.
