People living in huge cities don't always have a sensation that the city is theirs, it is always artificial for them. Functions are divided spontaneously and more often - unreasonably. History of cities shows that first of all newly appeared towns deal with protection of their life and activity, and only after that - with protection of their development and enlargement. Due to the combination of causes theoretically a city is always absurd - and in real life it is in many ways deprived of human conditions of intellectual development. There are no absolutely harmonically developing cities. There are no cities destroying some elements of evolution and history. A person looses his spiritual guiding line; a city looses its area health.

Time. Similarities and distinctions, accommodation of new in old - these are the keys that lead to understanding of the subject of the competition, which is open for architects, designers, sculptors and students.
