western harbour like a puzzle

"In contrast, the products of human planners and engineers are constructed to meet specified needs in a much more direct manner, and are correspondingly less viable", from "Ecology and Flexibility in Urban Civialization", by Gregory Bateson.

With this in the back of my mind, I will investigate further into the western harbour, looking at the structure of the area.

The living areas in the western harbour seems from an outsider`s view to be rigidly planned, and made like a puzzle where everything falls into it`s right place without any outer influence. Is it so? Where is the flexiblity in it`s surroundings?
