Under the leadership of partners Ajon Moriyama, Jason Moriyama, Diarmuid Nash and Daniel Teramura, Moriyama & Teshima Architects has cultivated a dynamic Team of young, innovative designers around a longstanding core of design traditions and experience that continue to define our practice. In 2012 we were pleased to announce four new Principals - Christie Mills, Carol Phillips, Brian Rudy and Kathryn Seymour. Our people reflect the demographic diversity that characterizes Canadian culture: a diversity that enriches design and the processes of place-making.
In our view, place-making is an act of passion: passion for land, nature, site and context; passion for people and experience; and passion for the power and possibilities of design. We believe that the success of design is rooted in collaborative processes that approach challenges and solutions holistically, and that work at all times to integrate site, building, context and a plurality of perspectives into a built reality we can all be proud of.
Founded in 1958 by Raymond Moriyama in Toronto, Canada, Moriyama & Teshima has built its reputation on distinctive landmark projects such as the New Canadian War Museum in Ottawa, and in Toronto the Bata Shoe Museum, that have garnered numerous awards for innovative design and planning solutions, delivered on time and on budget.
In the midst of our increasingly complex lives, we all yearn for simple reminders of our place in the world. We want our senses to be stimulated. We want to experience nature daily. We want to share spaces with our friends and neighbours. We want healthy workplaces. We want honour and respect. These are the kinds of values that inform our work.
