DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSION: AUGUST 1st 2014

Raymond Moriyama FRAIC, the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada (RAIC) and the RAIC Foundation have created the Moriyama RAIC International Prize to raise the international stature of the RAIC and the Canadian architectural profession, and to encourage Canadian architects to aspire to international excellence. It is hoped that the Moriyama RAIC International Prize will be regarded as one of the world’s most prestigious international prizes in architecture.

The Moriyama RAIC International Prize will be awarded every two years. It will consist of a monetary award of CAD $100,000 and a handcrafted sculpture designed by internationally renowned Canadian designer Wei Yew. Every edition of the prize will feature a new piece by Wei Yew, each based on a separate and unique interpretation of the Canadian landscape.

The prize is awarded to an architect, team of architects, or architect-led collaboration, based anywhere in the world, in recognition of a single work of architecture that is judged to be transformative within its societal context and expressive of the humanistic values of justice, respect, equality and inclusiveness.

Three finalists will be identified in an open, juried selection process, and invited to attend a formal gala where the Moriyama RAIC International Prize winner will be announced and the prize presented. The inaugural gala will take place in Toronto on October 11, 2014.

The Moriyama RAIC Student Scholarships will also be presented at the gala. Three individual cash scholarships of CAD $5,000, each named in honour of one of the three finalists shortlisted for the Moriyama RAIC International Prize, will be awarded to three deserving students in Canadian Schools of Architecture.

Raymond Moriyama’s decision to become an architect came early in life. He received his bachelor’s degree in Architecture from the University of Toronto and a Masters in Civic and Town Planning from McGill University.

In 1958 Mr. Moriyama started his practice, Moriyama Architect and Planner. He joined with Ted Teshima in 1970 to form Moriyama & Teshima Architects. Mr. Moriyama has applied his extraordinary vision and understanding to numerous projects including the original Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre, Ontario Science Centre, Science North, Scarborough Civic Centre, Toronto Reference Library, Bata Shoe Museum, National Museum of Saudi Arabia, Canadian Embassy in Tokyo and the Canadian War Museum in Ottawa that received the Governor General’s Medal for Architecture.

Mr. Moriyama has received numerous honours including the RAIC Gold Medal, International Fellow of the Royal Institute of British Architects, Honorary Fellow of the American Institute of Architects and honourary degrees from eleven universities. He also received the Order of Canada, the Order of the Rising Sun (Japan), and was promoted a Companion of the Order of Canada for his contributions to the field of architecture, and for inspiring a new generation of young architects through his designs of some of Canada’s most innovative urban structures.”
