About the Awards

As a leader in innovating learning environments, Learning Environments Australasia's Regional Awards are open to registered members whose educational facilities’ projects demonstrate an effectiveness in the planning, design and construction of educational facilities across the region.

The first Regional Awards were held in Melbourne in 2008 and were followed with even greater interest in 2010.  An Award presentation ceremony and exhibition of all entries is held in conjunction with the Regional Conference each year. The event has grown in size and strength, with 72 entries being received in 2017.

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.

The Awards Program not only reflects our focus on the design and use of engaging and innovative learning spaces and programs, but also supports the questioning and challenging of our current practices, to ensure the continual improvement and excellence we strive for.
