Remson-Haley Architects (RHA) has been selected to design the Louisiana House and produce a master plan for development of the six-acre site. The award-winning Baton Rouge firm specializes in housing. It offers the wide-ranging talents and expertise of seven architects. Principals Chris and Trula Remison will be assisted on the project by two of their associates, John Lackett (LSU and UC at Berkeley) and Samuel Herpin (ULL). The RHA team is working closely with the AgCenter specialists, allies and advisers to study and integrate all the LaHouse criteria into the house design.

The "legendary duo" of Dr. Neil Odenwald and Dr. Tom Pope [Photo (54 KB)] will design the six-acre landscape with Dr. Allen Owings and his team. Dr. Odenwald retired as director of LSU School of Landscape Architecture. He brings well-known and respected talent and experience to the project. Dr. Pope retired as an Extension horticulture specialist and brings great expertise to the project.

Assisting the AgCenter team with the design firm search process were Chris Theis, then acting director of the LSU School of Architecture; Bill Brockway, professional in residence, LSU School of Architecture; and Eddie Cazayoux, professor of ULL School of Architecture. Seven firms were interviewed during the selection process.
