Following the success of the 2012 and 2013 Generation Kingspan Architectural Design Competition, Kingspan is holding a 2014 design competition for architecture students. This year the focus will be on how KarrierPanel Barrier Wall Systems and KingZip Roofing Panels utilizing insulated metal panels (IMPs) can be integrated into the design of an urban mixed-use building. Unlike most competitions, the GenK competition participants benefit from both a popular social vote as well as a review by a juried panel of professionals. Entries that meet all requirements must be uploaded to and entries can be modified until the submission deadline.
