This Just In: Brad Pitt's Eco Designs For Dubai

It seems as if the Jolie-Pitt family must thrive on activity. Between settling into a French mansion, preparing for the birth of his twins, and various public appearances, charity work, and acting roles, Brad Pitt is, according to People, designing a green hotel in Dubai.

Green building and Brad Pitt are certainly no strangers. He helped build green housing in NOLA and also narrated a PBS series on green design, among many other green-related projects.

"Selecting this development as my first major construction project has been a simple decision," said Pitt. "It will underpin not only my values for environmentally-friendly architecture, but also embrace my career in entertainment."

Apparently, plans for the resort will be revealed over the next few months. While I'm pleased that Dubai has adopted a green building code, the fact remains that Dubai itself is essentially an unsustainable place to build. However, green building is the best type of construction to pursue in an area, such as Dubai, which is lacking natural resources. Regardless of the building controversy surrounding Dubai in general, I'd be thrilled to stay in a Pitt-designed hotel. Would you?
