■Summary of the design contest by Toshio Yamashita Executive Committee Chairman
Themes of this year's works included disasters, aging society, environment,lifestyle, education, etc., and I felt that the students' 
awareness of issues in the world has deepened.
I should note that this contest reflects the international perspective as we can see in the list of themes. 
Also, I would like to mention that the advice to each team in the two times workshops held in between each screening effectively improved the final works.
I appreciate the support from the members of the screening committee,sponsors and supporters which made it possible for us to organize this contest.
As the executive committee, we would like to keep on putting more efforts to make the next contest even better.
