These Awards are open to Learning Environments Australasia 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 within West Australia.

 

Learning Environments Australasia aims to raise the standard of educational planning and design, with a focus on educational outcomes, as it applies to all educational facilities across the West Australia.

 

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.

 

Awards will be presented at the end of year Christmas Event in December
