Learning Environments

Globalization now affects every industry, as journalist Thomas L. Friedman illustrated in the bestseller, The World Is Flat: A Brief History of the 21st Century.

The AIA Committee on Architecture for Education invites you to attend Schools in a Flat World, a conference that will explore educational design solutions ranging from a small Arctic high school to a 100,000-student university in India.

    collaborative design and construction and rank among the world’s highest in student achievement

  • Gain insights from distinguished designers from the Middle East,
    Europe, North America, South America, Asia, Australia, and Africa

  • Make your own global connections with colleagues who share your
    passion for creating exemplary learning environments
