The landscape architectural scale model

/The landscape architectural scale model

The scale model of a land includes the topographical characteristics, the shape of the land and the changes made in the new project. The model of a land consists of fenced surfaces, the roads and the water slides and also the trees and the groups of the most important trees.

The Concept Scale Model

                The scale models of a land over a base, over which a concept scale model is built, are merely uncommon. If a land model is built during this phase, its realization should meet the requirements of a working model. The most important requirement is that the shape of the land can easily change. Also, it is possible to model the characteristic traces. Generally, in case of a conceptual scale model, it is necessary to represent a flat horizontal surface.

The Working Scale Model

Reproducing the shape of a land in existing road conditions and defining the surfaces as intended for construction and fencing by including the most representative elements such as trees, the model can continue to grow until it becomes an execution scale model, and for this, the shape of the terrain might be possible to modify.

The Execution Scale Model

As the ultimate expression of the topography, accesses, and surfaces intended for circulation and fencing, the representation of existing trees and groups of trees and the new plantation, the quality of the layout and the effect produced must correspond to the intended use.

                The landscape model is the representation of relief forms at scale 1: 500, 1: 1000, 1: 2500 and exceptionally scale 1: 5000. These layouts may represent areas for circulation, green areas, forests, bushes vegetation and the existing edifice in the form of simple volumes. The most important aspect of this type of model consists of the modification of the landscapes and the soil forms related to them, such as the representation of the characteristic stages of vegetation, such as guard towers, hydraulic presses, high voltage electric poles, etc. A set of edifices with simple volumes might be embedded in a landscape model. The landscape models are needed, for example, to design large parks, areas where people spend their free time, areas of functional importance near the cities, etc.

The Concept Scale Model

Together with the base of a land model (made as a working model) the landscaping models are configured through simple environments and the land modelling must be possible.

The Working Scale Models

A more detailed but yet modifiable representation of the shape and size of each space and of the relationships between them. It must contain exact data about the existing orientation and views.

The Execution Scale Models

They contain concrete and definitive data on the characteristics of each space, its vegetation and its relation to the existing and projected construction.
