He is known for his captivating on-screen persona, but recently Brad Pitt, with his passion for environmentally-friendly architecture, has been named designer of a green hotel and resort in Dubai. Aside the L.A.-based architecture firm GRAFT and Zabeel Properties, the movie star will be part of a team of design consultants for the 800-room, five-star hotel.
Getting his hands dirty on the design board is not new for Pitt. He has also built affordable, environmentally-friendly homes in New Orleans’ Lower 9th Ward and has been a powerful presence with his design efforts for Global Green USA in the wake of Hurricane Katrina.
As Pitt’s first major construction project, the “socially conscious” resort in Dubai is planned to be a world leader in the environmental sustainability scene by going green without losing the glamour. Unveiling the development plans for this hot spot won’t happen for a few months. The anticipation, however, is surely growing as we await for not just one of the hottest and most environmentally conscious men in Hollywood to live out his architecture passion, but to find out how much it costs to stay in one of his hotel rooms.
