Physical Enhancing outdoor space.

Broader Accessible non-linearity; Unstructured common domain; Chain of fundamental transformation zones; Bounded common small-scale interaction domains; Limitation on number of occupiable temporary sites; Distinct pattern of entry points to complex structures; Orientation of structures to enhance receptivity to external insight; Structural development designed to counteract deficiencies in pattern harmony.

Narrower Ambiguous boundaries; Interconnected structures; Focus-oriented communication networks; Hospitability of communication pathways; Contexts of self-organizing non-linearity; Appropriate proportions of perspective contexts; Hierachy of perspectives favouring the broadest; Communication pathways enfolded by non-linearity; Hospitable non-linear domain external to structures; Integrating points of perspective into common domains; Functional integration of unstructured internal domains; Protecting non-linear contexts from communication pathways; Integration of non-linearity into integrative superstructure; Organization of structure to enhance autonomy of sub-structures; Hospitable interface between structures and external environment; Direct relationship between structures and communication pathways; Organization of structures to permit two sources of external insight; Organization of structures to enhance receptivity to external insight.
