Discover the architectural vision behind Canada’s striking and iconic national museum of military history. Architect Raymond Moriyama’s remarkable commentary on the design principles of the building highlights the vision behind each structural element—from the echoes of the Canadian landscape, to the sound of nature in Regeneration Hall, to the axis of the sun at 11 a. m. on Remembrance Day. The Legacy Document is a key reference for the conservation of the Canadian War Museum, and it explores Moriyama’s dream for the future of the building and its landscape.
