At a local level, our Chapters and members are actively involved in planning, designing, building, equipping and maintaining learning environments that enhance learning outcomes for students.Learn More
Each year we curate over 60 events that provide a fantastic opportunity to engage with educators, architects and organisations to share best practice, engage in ongoing research and explore latest trends.
We are an association that is international, we are a catalyst for improving learning environments worldwide and we speak in the ‘voice’ of those with whom we engage with, whilst embracing our JEDI (justice, equity, diversity, inclusion) principals.Learn More
Our Awards Programs celebrate our members’ projects that demonstrate effectiveness in the planning, design and construction of educational facilities across the region.

We have eight Chapters across the Australasia Region: TAS, NSW, VIC, QLD, SA, WA, ACT and New Zealand, plus an affiliate group in the Northern Territory.
LEA was formed as an Australasian Chapter in 2000 and the Australaisan Region in 2004. We are affiliated with the Association for Learning Environments, a global network of more than 5,000 professionals.
LEA has over 950 members across Australia, New Zealand and Malaysia. This collaborative community of educators, designers and decision-makers are all passionate about improving learning environments.
The diversity of our professional membership is the key to our success. No community can build a school in isolation or without the participative work of all stakeholders.
LEA hosts over 60 events and professional development programs per year including site visits, workshops, symposia, research programs, Awards programs, think tanks, debates and our annual regional day out (RDO) and annual regional conference.
LEA is driven by three key aims:
○ to advocate for quality learning environments;
○ to promote and share world’s best practice among educators and designers, and;
○ to invest in the research and development of new concepts.
