Moriyama RAIC International Prize

Moriyama RAIC International Prize

Raymond Moriyama, FRAIC, the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada (RAIC) and the RAIC Foundation 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 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.

The next Moriyama RAIC International Prize will be held in 2017.
