The Royal Architectural Institute of Canada (RAIC), which is formerly known as the Moriyama RAIC International Prize has started accepting entries for the third $100,000 RAIC International Prize. Founded by the Canadian architect Raymond Moriyama in 2014, this prize is open to all architects, of every nationality and location.
This prize aims to give recognition to great architecture worldwide, especially those architectural works that bring changes in society and promotes justice, respect, equality, and inclusiveness.
An international jury of experts sits to choose the winner in the competition. The decision is taken after considering a range of criteria, including site visits to shortlisted projects. The prime focus is to choose work of architecture that is inspired as well as inspiring. Li Xiaodong of China was the inaugural winner of the Moriyama RAIC International Prize in 2014.
As its name suggests, this prize is awarded every two years. Apart from this, students of architecture in programs in Canada are also awarded three RAIC International Prize Scholarships along with the RAIC International Prize.
