Lecture by Raymond Moriyama

This year marks the 90th anniversary of Canada-Japan diplomatic relations. We are pleased to present a lecture by Mr. Raymond Moriyama, a Japanese-Canadian architect who designed the chancery of the Embassy of Canada to Japan.

Mr. Moriyama will talk about his experience of designing of the chancery including concepts and icons that relate to both Canada and Japan.

Mr. Moriyama has applied his visionary architectural approach to numerous landmark projects including Saudi Arabian National Museum, the Bata Shoe Museum, Ontario Science Centre and the Canadian War Museum in Canada. Such highly visible projects consistently earn praise for their attention to the needs and purposes of the people who use them. He has received some of the highest professional honours including the Confederation of Canada Medal, the RAIC (The Royal Architectural Institute of Canada) Gold Medal, honourary degrees from ten Canadian universities and the Order of Canada. He was a Chancellor of Brock University (Ontario) from 2001 to 2007.

We hope you will enjoy this lecture as an opportunity to find out more about a part of the history of Canada-Japan diplomatic relations.
