What is Section Cut?

In the discipline of architecture, a section cut is an essential type of drawing; a single slice of a building. SC aims to be a web-parallel to this powerful drawing convention—in the same way that a drawing cuts through immense complexity to show a single moment, we aim to cut through the noise of the internet, straight to the good stuff.





Our resources range from hardcore architectural theory texts to beautifully designed products to everyday support for practicing designers.

Some items are avaliable for purchases (about half), which is how we support our mission without gross banner ads. Every item in our curated marketplace - every tool or text - is contributed by a trustworthy Curator who will tell you why it's so essential.

Who is a Curator?

A Curator could be you! We are a community comprised of many designers and architects, but not exclusively. The only requirements for participation are a sensibility and an opinion!
