    The Make It Right Foundation, founded in 2006 by actor and New Orleans resident Brad Pitt in the wake of the Hurricane Katrina tragedy, is a creatively-minded, socially-aware coalition seeking to build affordable, green housing in the Lower 9th Ward — at the highest aesthetic standards, and foregrounded by the needs of neighborhood’s original residents.  Initially, Pitt courted advice from local residents and teamed with Global Green to hold an international architecture competition, generating innovative ideas on how to blend sustainable housing with the cultural nuances of the neighborhood.  International and local architects selected by the Make It Right team to contribute designs solutions include Adjaye Associates, Morphosis, Concordia and Shigeru Ban Architects, among others. Make It Right has set its goal to build 150 affordable, sustainable homes for the displaced community of the Lower 9th Ward.
    Philip Michael Wolfson, born 1958 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, studied at Cornell University, School of Architecture, Ithaca, New York and the Architectural Association, London, England. Upon graduation, he worked with Zaha Hadid at the outset of her career, leading design teams on numerous projects, and establishing a strong collaboration with her office which subsequently spanned some 20 years.  Since setting up his own practice in 1991, Wolfson has worked throughout Europe and the USA , predominantly on residential interiors and exhibition/gallery design pieces.
