As a result of the development of materials, can be employed in the creation of spaces and forms within the buildings more interesting and remarkable, converting materials that meet environmental and structural function to more benefit from the distinctive materials in buildings used for children, especially those buildings that contribute to the output of positive energy in the form of indirect education -where Modern educational approaches are aimedat creating a creative and innovative

The creative environment for children is the environment that contributes to raising the child's imagination and expectations according to elements that help in using them in an unusual way.Here, the creative child possesses unlimited imagination and architecture must respond to those needs for stimulating imagination with what smart materials can offer. Smart materials are more multifunctional "changeability and responsiveness according to needs". Being flexible and adaptable to the environment by improving building's impact to provide healthier and more efficient environment.The research aims to utilize concepts of smart materials and intelligence techniques that act more dynamically. IoT Internet of things emerged the architecture spaces giving more smart potentials. The application of "Internet of Things" in the architectural spaces affects the built environment. The research question is whether the use of smart materials and IoT technology in children's spaces provides a creative an innovative environment? The dramatic increase in technology with new systems has encouraged the study of the different characteristics of building materials. Through the analysis of some case studies that deal with children's spaces, there is a presence of the characteristics and practices of intelligence in architecture.The findings confirm that the use of smart materials and new technological techniques in children's spaces is the source of the positive benefits that create a cognitive relationship between the child and his environment.Through the lessons learned from the analytical study, some ideas were proposed to enhance the concept of creativity in architecture while giving a new dimension to the space and time.
