The design of New National Stadium Japan is providing a golden opportunity to take thought of spatial structures in the 21st century. However the real competition organized by the Japanese government has never had enough space to involve the proposal from young people, who will be the real financier and user of the stadium for future. Therefore the organizing committee of IASS2016 decided to host an international competition of the new national stadium Japan for young generation. The competition is a design competition which is completely independent from the one organized by Japanese government for the real project. The purpose of it is to encourage and to see the idea from young people. The winning proposals will be awarded during IASS2016. Designers, engineers and students under 40 of age are all welcome to participate in the competition.
