My project now consists of mesh walls that can curve to form overhangs, seating, and hallways.   Most of the work that I’m doing at this point is finalizing ideas and figuring out how the design will actually work.  I want to use the style of mesh called rope:

To keep the mesh in tension I want to use the scroll attachment at the top and springs at the ground level.

The mesh will be held in place by stainless steal tubes with grooves for the mesh to slide through:

As for the different applications for the wall I have drawn up a plan view of the “site”

To better help explain what the different applilcations look like I drew up some sections to scale at 1/4″-1″,0″:

The first section is of a ten foot wall.  The second is of the highest point with an overhang, which is located in the chapel.  The third is a cross section of the chapel.  The forth is of the seating unit. The fifth is of a hallway made by the mesh and an anonymous object, (at this point a curved, oval, wood wall.)

I took some up close pictures of the units and what they look like at this point:
