    This is really cool but I’m pretty sure the last one isn’t University of Louisiana, I think you have it mixed up with one of the others.

    According to the Dept of Energy, that’s the U of Louisiana at Lafayette house!

    The last one has the same clerestory windows as the house in pic 5(which is Louisiana Lafayette).

    The U.S. Dept of Energy’s 2009 Solar Decathon was such an incredible experience for us. As a graduate student in architecture, I realize the invaluable knowledge we have gained by participating. We are so proud to have gone to this outstanding and prestigious international competition to proudly represent the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, Southern Culture, and the State of Louisiana. Bringing home the market viability and people’s choice award really shows that we did our best to meet the needs and desires of the people by designing a home that’s hurricane resistant and culturally-relevant.

    Well, I imagine that clears up a couple of challenges for me personally. How about everyone else?
