Now it seems crucially important for us too, to seek positive and essential proposals beyond COVID19. Therefore, this time the theme became “The Home of Man”. The proposals could be facilities from our surroundings, ideal city plans, or may even be institutional. Proposals should be broad ideas that go far beyond what just a home is. We look forward to your proposals.

Since last year living in a COVID-19 calamity, the maximum priority in our society now is preventing and spreading of infectious disease, which is giving us many constraints in our daily actions. It is well understandable for our daily lives to be supervised but at the same time quite suppressing.

Under a situation which is unusual, diversity is declined and many subjects which had been questioned has shadowed below as it has fallen into oblivion. In The Home of Man (1977), by Le Corbusier and Francois de Pierrefeu, shows aspirational plans to reconstruct the city of Paris vandalized by the Nazis during evacuation in World War II.
