We recently gathered to celebrate the career and retirement of Moriyama & Teshima Architects’ Partner, Daniel Teramura. Daniel’s legacy at our firm is that of sophisticated design expertise, a calm and dignified leadership style, and humble professionalism throughout all aspects of his work. Regarded as one of the most accomplished post-secondary architects in Canada and the recipient of many significant accolades, Daniel’s thoughtful, problem-solving approach to future-proof, sustainable design made an immeasurable impact to MTA’s success over his 33 years with the firm.
Some of his most notable MTA projects include the UTM Innovation Complex at the University of Toronto Mississauga campus, the Cape Breton College Verschuren Centre for Sustainability in Nova Scotia, the Hazel McCallion Phase 2 Building and Phase 2A Student and Athletic Centre at Sheridan College, and the Toronto Metropolitan University Centre for Urban Innovation, among numerous others.
Laughs were shared, tears were shed, and cherished memories were recounted during the fun evening spent at the Goldring Student Centre at the University of Toronto, a project whose design and construction was led by Daniel. Please join us in wishing him a happy retirement!
