He teaches at the University of Southern California and has taught at the University of Brighton, University of Bath, Architectural Association School of Architecture, University of Nottingham, Columbia University, Cornell University, SCI-Arc, Royal Danish Academy of Art, Dessau Institute of Architecture, and Institute of Advanced Architecture of Catalunya IAAC. He was the co-curator (with Xu Wei-Guo) of the A2 Exhibition of Avant-Garde Architecture at the Architecture Biennial Beijing 2004, and of the Emerging Talents, Emerging Technologies Exhibition at the Architecture Biennial Beijing 2006.

Leach's position in regards to architectural theory was first set out in the "cultural reader" he edited, Rethinking Architecture (1997). The book contained a selection of well-known writings about architecture written by thinkers within Continental Philosophy, ranging from Hermeneutics and Phenomenology to Structuralism and Deconstruction, prefaced by Leach's own introduction. Among the authors included were: Jacques Derrida, Martin Heidegger, Umberto Eco and Andrew Benjamin. What the selection set out to represent was a rethinking of architectural practice; making it a critical activity, not simply accepting the given paradigm, while at the same time placing architecture within the realm of cultural studies.
