The house revealed by the Brad Pitt Make It Right NOLA foundation, Pitt’s green building group, can float you to saftey in the event of a flood disaster. Talk about sustainable design.

The Brad Pitt Make It Right NOLA home is designed by Morphosis Architects, founded by Thom Mayne and offers a ready-to-move concept based on families displaced by Hurricane Katrina. Essentially, the house is anchored to the ground by two guideposts. In the event of flooding, the house can break away from things like electrical lines and plumbing to move up the guideposts as much as 12 feet!
