Plans and sections are very important drawings in architecture, landscape architecture, and urban design and planning. They are used in schematic, design development and construction phases of projects. When properly drafted, they can convey a lot of information to the clients and governing agencies and project team members. "Plan and Section Drawing" introduces useful process and skills in producing various kinds of plans and sections, including presentation graphic and process graphic, design process (regional maps, vicinity maps, site information maps), analytical drawings, conceptual drawings (bubble diagrams, conceptual diagrams, conceptual maps), design drawings (final site development maps, preliminary maps), plan graphics (architecture, vegetation, trees, shrubs, ground covers, overlapping and shadows, water, pavement, etc.), elevations and sections (vertical exaggeration), sections graphics (graphic vocabulary, architecture, vegetation, human figures, ground, annotation) and computer graphic. Thomas C. Wang is very talent and he has good artistic hands. He not only shows you nice drawing samples, but also the process to produce them. "Plan and Section Drawing" has 144 pages and many well-done interior black-and-white line drawings. It is a valuable book for learning some of the most important skills for your career as a design professional. Copyright 2007 Gang Chen, author of "Planting Design Illustrated"
