In this movie, we'll continue working on our townhouse facades and refining them…a little bit further.…In the last movie, we created this outline footprint here which was going to…help us get everything positioned.…And in this movie we are going to use these really simple Platonic Forms that…are actually existing mass families that come with the software.…And we are just going to be placing those almost like working with blocks and…just kind of placing children's blocks around and stretching them and pulling…them to the forms that we want.…So I've already created a few here off on this side and we're kind of fill in…the missing blanks and I'll kind of show you how I did that.…
Now let me just give you a quick overview of the file setup before we continue.…It's largely similar to the files that we've been working on in the last several movies.…We've got our rectangular reference lines down here, which was back from our…original massing model.…We've got these two reference planes here in the center, marking the…
