The nonprofit Make It Right (MIR), best known for building homes in New Orleans’s Lower 9th Ward after Hurricane Katrina—not to mention its founder-actor Brad Pitt—announced a new project in partnership with the Sioux and Assiniboine tribes of Fort Peck, Montana. The project entails building 20 Cradle-to-Cradle-inspired, LEED Platinum homes for tribe members in Fort Peck, Montana.
Over the weekend at Dwell on Design Los Angeles, one of the homes was showcased in the Dwell Outdoor zone. The interior was decorated with native art that was part of an online auction with proceeds going to Make It Right. Starting right before Dwell on Design LA and concluding on Friday, June 5th, the online auction took place on the MIR website.
Method Homes, builder of beautiful, sustainable, energy-efficient prefab homes, is working with Make It Right on the project.
“The community engagement in the design process and overall mission of creating a holistically sustainable community have been inspiring to witness,” says Brian Abramson, co-founder of Method Homes.
