This issue of JA features a collection of urban space ideas proposed by 50 groups of young architects. You may be wondering why architects are making proposals for urban planning. The truth is, Japanese urban areas need to undergo a major transformation to make it through the 21st century. I believe that spatial proposals are important also with regard to reconstruction of the quake-devastated areas.So, I would like to see architects of the future be active in the field of urban planning too. We are presenting this issue as a celebration of the future of Japans cities and the new stage that architects will be performing on. Also there are three essays with Yasuaki Onoda, Eiji Hato and Masashi Sogabe.
