An architectural water body is a water feature that is integrated into the design of a building or landscape. It could be a pond, pool, fountain, or other type of water feature that is intended to enhance the aesthetic appeal of the environment.
Architectural water bodies can serve a variety of purposes, such as providing a natural habitat for plants and animals, creating a soothing atmosphere through the sound of flowing water, and adding visual interest to a space.
They are often designed to complement the surrounding architecture and landscape, and may be used as a focal point or decorative element in a garden or public space.

A water body detail drawing is a technical drawing that shows the specific details of a water feature, such as a pond, pool, or fountain. It usually includes a detailed plan view and cross-sectional views, as well as notes and specifications for materials, construction techniques, and other relevant information.
The drawing may also include details such as the location of pipes and valves, the size and depth of the water body, and any features such as waterfalls or fountains.
Water body detail drawings are typically used by architects, engineers, and contractors to plan and construct the water feature, and may also be used to obtain permits or approvals from relevant authorities.
Here are a few more things that a water body detail drawing might include:
- Elevation views: These show the water feature from the side and may include details such as the height of the water body, the slope of the surrounding ground, and any other relevant features.
- Details of the water circulation system: This may include details of the pump, filter, and other equipment used to circulate and treat the water.
- Landscaping details: If the water feature is part of a larger landscape design, the detail drawing may include information about the surrounding plants and other features.
- Lighting and electrical details: If the water feature includes lighting or other electrical features, the detail drawing may include information about the placement and wiring of these elements.
- Safety considerations: The detail drawing may include notes about safety features such as fencing, warning signs, and emergency shutdown procedures.
