How to Draw: Sections are ‘technical’ drawings which are made from cutting something vertically (ideally through the most interesting points of the space). You draw them, imagining everything you see from in-front is flat. Thick lines are things that have been cut. Thin lines are what you see. THICKEST line is the ground line. How to Use: Sections give a sense of space and volume with information about heights. It also helps show how people use a space. You will probably need more than one section: Your longest sections - are usually the most important. Your short sections - can be just as useful. ALWAYS: mark where you have cut your sections in the accompanying plan drawings. You may need more sections if your design is complex. If other sections are almost identical; do not draw them.
