This Frank Gehry Duplex was created for Make It Right, Brad Pitt's charity that helps victims of hurricane Katrina.

Gehry is just one of 14 local and international architects who participated in creating homes for the Make It Right project.

Each of the Make It Right homes were created to address common problems in homes.

Implications - Architecture that succeeds on both a technical and socially conscious level definitely stands out in a consumer's mind. In addition to providing a valuable place for victims of disasters to live, designs such as Frank Gehry's also succeed at pushing boundaries for sturdy, safe and cost-effective architecture--something that is definitely a must for initiatives seeking to help afflicted communities recover from disasters.
