Team Missouri's entry in the Solar Decathlon 2009 is called Show-Me Solar.

The team is a partnership between students from University of Missouri-Columbia and the Missouri University of Science & Technology.

According to their site:

The modern style of the home is governed by a modular three-foot grid on which everything connects, leaving the design simple for construction and unifying the interior and exterior with crisp, elegant lines.

Their page on the DOE site further explains:

The Show-Me House consists of a single module that is 15 by 50 ft (4.6 by 15.3 m). It is capped by a hinged roof, which is roughly 14.5 ft ( 4.4 m) at its highest point. Structural insulated panels in both the roof and walls provide an impressive R-40 insulation value.
