Brad Pitt not only stays in luxury resorts. Now, he's helping to create them.
Zabeel Properties, a Dubai-based developer, has announced the appointment of L.A.-based architecture firm Graft to lead in the designing of an 800-room, five-star hotel and resort.
Pitt is among the design consultants for the project, which promises to reflect environmental sustainability.
"Whilst acting is my career, architecture is my passion," says Pitt. "Selecting this development as my first major construction project has been a simple decision. It will underpin not only my values for environmentally-friendly architecture, but also embrace my career in entertainment."
The actor, meanwhile, is continuing his involvement with the building of 150 new affordable and sustainable homes in New Orleans for those left devastated by Hurricane Katrina.
Green, gorgeous and generous. Can you stand it?
