Section Architectural Model

Section architectural model is a perfect presentation tool to demonstrate building foundation and framework and explain the physical and spatial relationships of a building at the same time.

Section architectural model is best suited at 1:100 or 1:200 as construction details and interior design of the building can be seen clearly with these scales.

Once the structures like layers of facade cladding, staircase construction and supporting beams need to be shown, architectural drawings and other related information can help to avoid modeling errors.

Select appropriate model making materials and approaches to make the section architectural model helps the client to save some time and cost, and it mainly depends on what messages need to be expressed.

In order to give an insight into the internal structural aspects and specific detailing of the architectural design, the lighting system can be added to the section architectural model to further highlight the unique features of the design.

In short, section architectural model is a valuable tool to develop and promote the primary design, and it is also a visual representation that assists the viewers to understand the overall completed design and architectural rendering, and therefore stimulate the potential buyers’ purchasing desire.
