Drywall installation question

I am installing drywall on the front wall of a quonset. The walls and ceiling are one continous curve, The drywall will not be holding any ceiling material (as in normal room installation) so my question is this; is it best to start from tyhe bottom and work my way up or top down? Any tips are appreciated.

how tall is the ceiling.. if its fairly high i woiuld start from the floor making sure you keep the board 1/2" off the floor so it doesnt take on moisture if the floor floods.

by working from the bottom up when you start getting up into the radius you will have a "hard surface to take your measurements off for figuring out the arc. you can make reference lines on the last sheet to then transfer marks on to the next sheet being hung
