The paper substantiates the importance of visual and tactile functions of the human body in the process of creation of volumetric and spatial compositions in architecture and design planning; generalizes the profound academic knowledge of visual and attributable characteristics of objects and their geometrical parameters for the competent arrangement of hologram aspects of linear and tonal perspectives. The research is dedicated to the process of perception and understanding of the term “volume” as the main characteristic feature of survival and self-protection of humans in nature.
Purpose. Lviv landfill has some features that should be considered when developing the methodology for determining the volume. The initial relief of severe fragmentation and a height difference of more than 70 meters make it is impossible to set the original horizontal plane for determining the volume. The slope of current garbage body surface ranges from 0 to 85 degrees and a vertical drop is more than 80 m. This leads to significant relief errors in carry out for aerialphotography.
