New green homes are being built in the 9th Ward of New Orleans that have solar panels, energy efficient features, and stilts. The homes will be constructed high enough off the ground to clear floodwaters. Architects from the U.S and around the world designed the houses, so they greatly vary. More info and photos of houses in mid-construction below the jump...

The homes are being built by the Make It Right Foundation, which was founded by Brad Pitt in response to Hurricane Katrina. So far, 85 of the 150 target houses have been funded. We love the look of the quirky home designs and their green features.
