Perhaps some additional planometric work or analysis will lead you to some understanding of the various parts of your neighrbohood and why the sectional conditions relate to the morphological shifts in the architecture.

Continue to look for cultural clues in fabric- symbols, zoomed in textures….meaning!

Think finer grained planometric analysis. How does this relate to the automobile, and also the scaled dimensional distances to the city center and to local nodes such as the gate and fountain? How are this understood in the neighborhood? How are they not and potentially lost? What are the smallest scales of the neighborhoods? Regional connectivity?
