During this time, Richard wrote Design for Play (1969), which presented his beliefs about play spaces and their role in transmitting cultural values and facilitating children’s development and learning. He declared that “play is a child’s way of learning” and that play scapes are needed to “give the children the maximum range of experience, and to allow them so far as possible to control it.” Design for Play also chronicled the development of the adventure playground and highlighted other promising playscape designs.
