APDesign students compete for top honors in annual Ted and Sue Knapp Delineation Competition

Submitted by Thom Jackson

Three students in Kansas State University's College of Architecture, Planning & Design, or APDesign, were recognized for exceptional work in the annual Ted and Sue Knapp Delineation Competition.

Minjung Nam, fifth-year student in interior architecture & product design, Incheon, South Korea, won first place in the freehand color for "The Interior of Falling Water" and first place in the computer category for "Tori."

In the mixed media/hybrid category there was a tie for first place. Prajakata Thipsay, fifth-year student in architecture, Chembur, Mumbai, won first place for "Nested Spaces" and first place to Julia Kappelman, fourth-year landscape architecture, Olathe, for "Places of Memory."

While the jury was anonymous, one juror stated, "Both are at equal levels of accomplishment, but reveal very different strengths of hybrid drawings”, when referring to the tie. The students' work is on virtual display by going to APDesign 2020 Delineation Competition.

The annual competition was open to all students at APDesign, including those in the articulated program at the University of Missouri, Kansas City. Competition awards include first-place in each competition category earned $750. Ted Knapp, a 1964 Kansas State University architecture alumnus, and founder of TK Architects, Kansas City, Missouri, along with his late wife, Sue, established the competition to recognize the artistic talents of students and the importance of delineation in APDesign.
