clearing a path + shading a path

The intention was to designated a path between the existing path and clearing, from this we established varying widths in grasshopper which determined how much shading coverage we wanted. The systems is one in which the created path is covered by moving louvres which respond to the sun, so that at any given time you might have as much shading as possible.
