1. Review the book/pdf "Raumplan vs Plan Libre" and choose a precedent residence from either Adolf Loos or Le Corbusier and create a model of it using 3dsMax.

To do this you will need to complete the following tutorials:

1 Minute startup videos to begin your 3dsMax training:

Modeling a building using Boolean Operations:

For correct lighting/shadowing models need to have a second UV channel that is unwrapped so that there are no overlapping coordinates; these tutorials are the best I’ve found on a topic that can be confusing for beginners:

All tasks must be completed by the beginning of next week's tutorial. All task requirements contribute to your final blog grade.

1. Complete the full set of tutorials above and finish the building of your precedent model by the beginning of week 10. Take special care not to add unnecessary detail with geometry; in other words use texture application to replicate detail at fine scale.
