Fabric Formed Filigree Wall

Just registered for the Second International Conference on Flexible Formwork (icff2012). It will be very exciting to meet with the fabric-forming crowd!
A friend just shared a link for this project, a fabric-formed wall, by the architectural office Thompson Young Design in Charleston, South Carolina, USA.
Since this project actually seems to have a context, as opposed to all the fabric-formed prototypes made in architectural research labs, it would be great to see images of the finished piece, possible a landscaping feature?

The prefabricated fabric formwork resembles the principle for geotechnical mattress systems - just put to architectural use.

Thanks Susanne for the link.
Yours concretely
