As a leader in the field of educational facilities, Learning Environments Australasia (LEA) invites you to make submissions for the 2018 Learning Environments Awards.


These Awards are open to all registered LEA members - planners, school principals, bursars, consultant architectural firms or construction management firms whose educational facilities projects demonstrate effectiveness in planning, design and construction of educational facilities across the Australasia region.

The core mission of the awards is to bridge the awareness of architects and school communities about the interplay between teaching and learning methodology and space by identifying examples of good educational spaces where innovative architectural ideas successfully support an educational philosophy.
