Beausoleil Home Takes First in Market Viability Contest

Marsha Sills with The Advocate has a nice piece in today's paper on the Beausoleil House and it's win yesterday in the Market Viability Contest of the Solar Decathlon. That article can be seen here. It's not too late to vote in the people's choice award so let's show 'em our support and get texting!


  1. 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.
