French term or phrase: maquettes de decors en volume/projets de decors
Description of holdings in an opera house library. I found the term "stage set model" but I'm not sure what "en volume" refers to (three-dimensional?). And what's the best term for "projets de decors": set designs, sketches, plans? These appear in a list of holdings:
-Plans d'architecture
-Partitions manuscrites et imprimees
-Materiel d'orchestre
-Livrets
-Projets de decors et de costumes
-Maquettes de decors en volume

Thanks very much, Karen

Three-dimensional - sketches for stage set and costumes
Explanation:
volume means three-dimensional

projets de décor et de costume: I would use "sketches", for the first part of the design is on paper.
