In the horrific times of struggle for the people of New Orleans, three architectural firms have designed a helpful solution to a part of the problem. The NOAH concept (New Orleans Arcology Habitat) is a new building that is designed to be both eco and community friendly.

The NOAH concept will feature 20,000 residential units, three hotels, 1,000,000 square feet of commercial space, plenty of cultural facilities and offices, a 20,000 healthcare clinic, and three casinos. It is equipped with solar panels and wind and water turbines.

What could be better for a city in need?
