My question is related to an actual masonry wall, not a Revit wall.  Do problems often arise from curved masonry walls, i.e. joinery, cost, or anything else.  I have not had experience from a actual mason, but a long 160' curved wall would seem to be better replaced by a diagonal.

With actual curved walls, your cost and joinery and the difficulty of integration with other walls is entirely dependant on the skill of your mason and his/her crew.  Most masons will charge a premium for a curved wall because of the care they need to take to get it right, but if you've got a good mason, that upcharge will mean that the work is of such a quality that there will be minimal problems with integration of other wall types.  I think that if you want a curved wall, design a curved wall and then get several prices from several masons.  If you anticipate that in your area there will be too much of a price premium for that curve, then think ahead and make mental note of how you would need to design it with a diagonal wall.  But if you're using Revit for the redesign, it shouldn't take too much to change the wall at a later date.  Design what you want, you may be surprised by the skills of the craftsmen around you!
