It is nearly two weeks since freak storms devastated America's Gulf Coast leaving hundreds of thousands of people homeless.
Now the authorities are turning their attentions to how they can re-house these evacuees.
Help could be at hand from Libeskind who, according to local reports, proposes building cheap, modular homes based on earlier designs (pictured) drawn up to re-house the victims of the Indian Ocean tsunami.
Earlier in the year the Polish-born architect worked with the New York City College of Technology on a project to rebuild a community in Sri Lanka, and Libeskind hopes the lessons learned from this experience can be transferred to helping the refugees in Mississippi and Louisiana.
The architect, better known for high-profile projects, believes the 54 sq m two-bedroom houses could be built in less than two weeks, depending on materials.
Featuring a pitched roof, bathroom and kitchen the home could cost little more than £2,000 to put up.
Meanwhile, other options being mooted to provide housing for the evacuees include using cruise ships, military bases and schools.
