Nut Domains

The square nuts from our Meccano set. Pushed together randomly, they form nice orientation domains - little areas where each square lines up with its neighbors.  Gaps open up between these domains, since they are not  lined up with each other.

The pattern reminds me of a city map, where rectangular buildings on a block are lined up, and then at a bigger street, the angle changes.
