Wires will work if they are just strung vertically and you choose a plant that will scramble or cling to itself as it grows (bougainvillea, for instance), or you can erect a trellis. There are lots of design magazines and books you can thumb through at your local library for ideas. And, here's a publication from the Universif of Florida with details about suitable vines:

Hope you find it helpful. Best wishes with your project!
