He has collaborated with his father and his brother, Jason, also an architect, on the Bay Bloor Radio redesign in 1988, which won them a citation from the Governor General. Ajon was involved in the design of the Canadian Embassy in Japan, Toronto’s Bata Shoe Museum, and the 1993 expansion of the Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre in Toronto, as well as the renovation of his father’s design for the Toronto Reference Library, named one of Canada’s most important public buildings of the past 100 years by Canadian Architect magazine. Moriyama considers the foundations of his practice to be ‘commitment to design excellence, business excellence and dedication to building lasting relationships.’
