Raymond Moriyama, C.C. - Companion of the Order of Canada
Companion of the Order of Canada
Raymond Moriyama is one of the world’s most innovative architects and urban planners. His design of the Canadian War Museum—inspired by the resilience of humanity and the environment in the face of the ravages of war—stands as a sombre, yet elegant, salute to the Canadian Forces and to veterans. He has elevated Canada’s reputation for architectural excellence through his signal designs and plans for the National Museum of Saudi Arabia, as well as the Canadian Embassy in Tokyo, which serves as a monumental symbol of the Canadian spirit. His architectural legacy will continue to influence and inspire young architects and planners for generations to come.
This is a promotion within the Order.
