In 3.1 (p. 163), Justine's Summer Palace is an "L-shaped block of 
buildings." I immediately thought of Conrad's famous L-shaped room. 
But the connection is tenuous or perhaps nonexistent. In any case, 
would an L-shaped compound be efficient in the desert? I would go for 
an inner courtyard surrounding the water supply with the buildings 
built around as shelter.
