The "plinth" regulates the structure-terrain relationship. These days, when talking about a plinth we generally mean an independent building component with different properties to the facade, which either appears as cladding or a solid wall. But conversely we also speak about a "plinth detail" when referrig to an interface with the ground "without a plinth".
