Fonds consists of records that document the activities of the Toronto based partnership of Moriyama & Teshima as architects and planners from 1957 to 2008, both individually as a firm and in joint venture.
The records include project and business files. The projects include those proposed and/or undertaken by the partnership such as: public buildings (civic and recreation centres), cultural and educational centres (libraries, museums and university buildings), land-use planning studies, residential buildings (single-family dwellings and multi-unit complexes), and commercial properties (car dealerships and malls); and places of worship and spiritual reflection.
The project files may include architectural drawings in hard-copy and digital format, such as sketches, technical drawings, conceptual designs, renderings, plans, sections, elevations, and details. Some drawings include overlays, colour, and extensive annotations. They may also include paintings, photographs, posters, site models, and presentation panels. Project files may also contain site surveys or maps, correspondence, financial records, minutes to meetings, and product samples.
The business files include contracts and specifications, proposal submissions, site research, various publications, planning reports, correspondence, cost estimates, meeting minutes, tender bids and contracts, reports, schedules, change orders and notices, reports, news clippings, media and public relations materials, and the personal office records of Raymond Moriyama including his scrapbooks, daytimers, written speeches, honorary diplomas, awards, and other material.
Fonds also includes audio cassettes and CD-ROMs that relate to the history of the partnership, including detail meetings with clients and other interested parties.
The fonds is arranged by corporate function. A project coding system created by Moriyama and Teshima Architects has been maintained as well as original file codes and numbers where applicable. Project codes include a numbering system whereby the first two digits represent the year the project was started followed by digits assigned sequentially.
