Résumé : Paying attention to children space has long been important. A large number of researchers have dealt to it, whether in science of psychology and sociology or in the field of architecture. According to the needs of the community and audiences, science of architecture always has seek creative ways to optimize the space for contacts in different fields, such as child-oriented spaces. It has been done with regard to the consideration of human needs and the importance of user’s behavior in achieving the goals of sustainable architecture. In addition, according to the theories of psychology, considering the importance of childhood, as one of the most important periods of human life, is so imperative. Therefore, designing a sustainable environment for children is an element, which requires further discussions, and it is necessary to contemplate psychological aspects and behaviors, related to a sustainable approach. In this context, it should be taken into consideration that what the principles of a sustainable design for children are, and, basically, how sustainable environment’s definition for the children should be. In this paper, the main effort is to take a step towards sustainable development by raising a discussion of child spaces with a sustainable development approach, and giving a physical dimension to the sustainable development indicators in the areas of children's centers. The research is a descriptive-analytic study, with use of library research method for data collecting, linked with the different categories of sustainability, architecture and psychology. As results, there are some suggested practical solutions to develop physical patterns for designing sustainable children's spaces, each of which could be a field for deeper qualitative and quantitative analysis in future studies.
