Education is essential for a country’s social and economic development and school architecture should be part of systems to support vital learning experiences of children and youth. This study investigates design patterns to support learning through play activities in schools. Play learning activities are explored as they act on the cognitive and motor development of children and young people. The potential of school buildings to embrace essential play learning activities is presented through their graphic translation into a list of design patterns. A new pattern language is created that includes value-based architectural settings for play, to support a productive school building design process.
