Looks like all the edges are folded.  Roll it out thinnish, fold it and slap it on there.  You don't have to be very neat about it.  If does look like you're going to have to transport it finished.  Let me suggest SPS for support.

Since the lower strips are on top of the upper strips, yes you start a tthe top and work down.

There shouldn't be any seams as each piece is just tucked under the next.

AThe joins I would say are lined up at the back.

Keep your tiers 1" width difference to get the right shape.

This style is v popular ATM here. Looks like a lot of fondant to chew through, lol!
