Prestigious new Award for Architecture endowed by Raymond Moriyama, Fraic

Ottawa, Canada

Royal Architectural Institute of Canada (RAIC)


Ottawa, Canada, 2012-07-04 - Architecture Canada | RAIC and the RAIC Foundation are proud to announce a major new award in architecture called the Moriyama RAIC International Prize. The Prize is named after its benefactor Raymond Moriyama, FRAIC, who made it possible with a generous endowment of $200,000.




The Prize will be awarded every two years in two categories. The first will be presented to a Canadian or international Architect for an outstanding built project, and be selected by juried competition. The second will be presented to a non-architect from anywhere in the world for outstanding contribution to architecture, and be selected by juried nomination. The inaugural Moriyama RAIC International Prize will be announced in late 2013.

Raymond Moriyama decided to become an architect at the age of four and founded Moriyama & Teshima Architects in 1958. He has had a long and distinguished career with projects that include the Canadian War Museum, Ontario Science Centre, Ottawa City Hall, the Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre, Saudi Arabian National Museum in Riyadh, and the Canadian Embassy in Tokyo. He has received numerous honours including the Confederation of Canada Medal, the RAIC Gold Medal and Governor General’s Medal in Architecture. He was also awarded the Order of Ontario, is a Companion of the Order of Canada and received the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal.

In his remarks at the RAIC Festival of Architecture in St. John’s last week, Mr. Moriyama explained why he wanted to create the prize: “My hope is that this will help raise not only RAIC’s stature internationally but also the stature of Canada and inspire all Canadians and Canadian architects to aspire higher.”

“This is a great day for architecture and for Canada,” said Barry Johns, FRAIC, and Chairman of the RAIC Foundation Trustees. “Raymond is not only one of Canada’s greatest architects and a hero to many Canadians, he has also conducted his practice with a rare degree of humanity and humility. I share his belief that Canadian architects can stand with the best in the world, and we look forward to working with him on an award that recognizes excellence in architecture and service to architecture at the highest level. The Moriyama RAIC International Prize is a testament to Raymond’s vision and generosity.”

More details about the Moriyama RAIC International Prize will be available at a later date.
