Royal Architectural Institute of Canada Launches Moriyama Prize

21 April, 2014

-By Holly O'Dell



The Royal Architectural Institute of Canada (RAIC) Foundation has launched the Moriyama RAIC International Prize, established in conjunction with prominent Canadian architect Raymond Moriyama. The prize, which consists of $100,000 and a sculpture by Canadian designer Wei Yew, is open to any architect, firm, or collaboration in the world for an outstanding building or project.

“My hope is that this prize will raise not only the stature of the RAIC internationally, but also the stature of Canada, and inspire Canadians and Canadian architects to aspire higher," Moriyama, who recently made a gift to the foundation to create the award, said in a statement.

Moriyama emphasized that the prize, awarded every two years, is not a lifetime achievement award. Entry criteria include design excellence, client satisfaction, and quality of detail. The prize also may be granted to a non-architect for an exceptional contribution to the profession.

Submissions are due by August 1, 2014. The inaugural award ceremony takes place in Toronto on October 11, 2014. The winner will be selected through an open juried competition.
