Gehry is one of 21 architects who are contributing their talent to Pitt's project. Among the other architects are a few prominent L.A. names -- Hitoshi Abe, Thom Mayne and Pugh + Scarpa.
The foundation is aiming to build 150 houses for people affected by the hurricane. Buyers are expected to pay as much as they can for a home, according to the foundation's website. It said the average price for a single-family house is $150,000, and $200,000 for a duplex.
Gehry designed a duplex that features four bedrooms and three bathrooms. It also has a rooftop terrace and covered porch areas.
But Gehry didn't choose the pink-and-lilac exterior paint. The owners chose the color as well as the design for certain fixtures, according to the foundation.
"I wanted to make a house that I would like to live in and one that responded to the history, vernacular and climate of New Orleans," Gehry said in a foundation press release.
