House designed by Frank Ghery for families who became homeless due to Hurricane Katrina in 2005.Are There Points of Criticism? Yes, primarily on two points. First: Some worry that the New European Bauhaus will be an exclusive and elite movement. Secondly, there are doubts about how sustainability is supposed to succeed alongside our growth-oriented capitalist system. Alexandra Mitsotaki, co-founder and president of the World Human Forum, says, “The notion of Bauhaus is a notion that is by definition quite elitist. We should go a step further … We must understand that in this we are all together. Whether we live in New York City, or in a slum in India, the truth is that if the climate catastrophe happens, we will all be the victims. Some more than others – poor people clearly more so.”

This colourful house is the Frank Gehry-designed New Orleans duplex for the Make It Right foundation, which constructs homes, buildings and communities for people in need, particularly those devastated by Hurricane Katrina. It has a rooftop terrace covered with frameless solar modules that convert sunlight into electricity and double as a waterproof canopy to provide added shelter.

Interesting solar installation.... don’t think we’d like to do this, but would love to incorporate solar somehow

I don't like the rail around the front porch but don't mind the layout of door and side porch.
