Lower Ninth Ward New Orleans

This Video is about a development in the Lower Ninth Ward where Brad Pitt Started a development called Make It Right.  Architects from all over have helped designed these uniques houses.  Some of them have some crazy designs but almost all are built on stilts because the development is located in a flood plain.  They have included roof hatches on all of the buildings incase of another Katrina.  The ONLY design concern i have is that they have implemented using pervious concrete in an area that they mention that the water will rise again, so why put something in that once muddy water covers it is going to have to be cleaned with a vac or pressure washed. Any ideas?
