Facades

I decided to focus on the various ways twisted mesh can be used in a facade.  My first design uses the mesh to shade a glass facade. The mesh gradually transforms across the facade from 0 twist to 90 degrees. It is held in place fairly conventionally (using what I envision as either the eclipse or scroll attachments) with intermediate attachments halfway up and angled to help keep the twist in the metal fabric:

From here I am going to look at different ways the twisted mesh can be supported (using more tension elements, perhaps?) and try out different designs for the facade.
