For my final project, I'm starting by modeling the geometry for a graffiti-proof screen wall.  The idea is that the slats make any tagging illegible and therefore discourages defacement.  

Initial parametric framework and powercopy failures:

Parametric rectangular pattern formwork based on a critical base point that can be modified:

Variations of the spacing and base points to create different patterns:


And then I found the limits of the sweeps:

What I'd like to do next is to use a spreadsheet to drive the parameters of the start and end lengths of the straight runs.  The powercopy is set up such that the straight pieces are controlled and then a curve connects the two endpoints.
