Section Study on Landform


The section above illustrates how to graphically show a part of the landscape, and also it shows the ecological relationships for this specific site: from hydrologic cycles to removal of forest cover due to rapid runoff, erosion and lack of percolation. Not only does the section reflects elevation changes in the terrain, and changes in the geography, but it also provides to the designer with a better understanding of microclimates prior to placing plant communities in a piece of land that transitions from a plane to hillside and eventually to a lake. Last, the mission of all sections in essence is to reveal elements that are usually hidden in a plan view.
