Raymond Moriyama Recognized with the Ontario Association of Architects Honour Roll

Raymond Moriyama, founder of Moriyama Teshima Architects, has been recognized with the Ontario Association of Architects (OAA) Honour Roll.

Raymond’s momentous life journey – from his childhood spent in a Japanese Internment Camp during World War II, to becoming one of the country’s most respected, talented, and humanistic architects – continues to inspire. Raymond applied his extraordinary vision and understanding to buildings such as the Ontario Science Centre, the Scarborough Civic Centre, the Toronto Reference Library, and the Bata Shoe Museum, all in Toronto; Science North in Sudbury; the National Museum of Saudi Arabia in Riyadh; the Canadian Embassy in Tokyo; and the Canadian War Museum in Ottawa (recipient of a 2008 Governor General’s Medal for Architecture). Such landmarks consistently earn praise for their intimate relationship to land, nature, and community – exemplifying Raymond’s commitment to a sustainable world.

The OAA Honour Roll will complement his already prestigious list of commendations, including the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada Gold Medal, International Fellowship with the Royal Institute of British Architects, Honorary Fellowship with the American Institute of Architects, the Order of Ontario, the Order of the Rising Sun (Japan), Sakura Award, the Companion of the Order of Canada, as well as honorary degrees from ten worldwide universities. His wide-spanning, diverse achievements are impressive, but perhaps most importantly, his impact on those passionate about designing a better world is truly immeasurable.

Raymond will be honoured with this distinction at the OAA Conference in May.
