Kingspan Insulated Panels North America has just announced their Generation Kingspan 2012 Design Competition for architecture students. The contest encourages U.S. and Canadian students to use Kingspan’s Insulated Metal Panels to create an innovative, net-zero energy, low-impact building that also reflects the company’s sustainable philosophy. The contest is currently in progress and will culminate with a ‘Grand Prize’ winner selection in November at the Greenbuild 2012 International Conference and Exposition in San Francisco. One winner will be determined by an esteemed panel and another winner determined by voting on the Generation Kingspan on-line design community. The two winners will each receive an internship at an architecture firm, a $2,500 scholarship and a $1,000 cash prize.

Two winners will receive an internship at an architecture firm, a $2,500 scholarship and a $1,000 cash prize. The top designs will then compete for exhibit floor votes at San Francisco's Greenbuild to determine the grand prize winner, who will be awarded a laptop and voucher for design software.


The Crowd-Vote Contest. All submissions will be reviewed first by online voters visiting and participating on the contest website. Online reviewers will have the ability to assign badges to designs based on the three key elements of the design competition: 1. Design/Vision, 2. Sustainability, and 3. Energy Efficiency. In addition, commenting capabilities will enable students, expert voters and entrants to discuss the designs for crowd-sourced learning opportunities. The on-line community winner will be based on the design that accumulates the most badges.
