2.1 Arrangement
The arrangement of the engineered features of a territory reflects both the nature of the land and the work of its people. Considered abstractly, this arrangement is a spatial pattern for human action, a maze of sites of activity and routes of movement. Its component features are distinguished according to the particular natural features with which they are associated, the particular kinds of artifacts present in them, the particular individuals or groups frequenting and using them, the particular times at which they are occupied and used, and the particular linkages among them. They are differentiated functionally into several distinct types of installations.
At no two places are the arrangements of sites and routes exactly identical, but their component elements are distinctive to each society and occur repeatedly in particular associations. The activity of each human group, with its own cultural and social constitution and a given sort of territory, tends regularly to produce a characteristic association of features in space.
