The interaction between an individual and a place creates many possible 'negotiated functions' different from its original function. Instead of drawing people closer, most of the Victoria Harbor front in Hong Kong is distant, barring people from staying long. Despite its not too attractive look, the harbor front near Java Road under the Eastern Corridor (a flyover) offers relatively easy access without barriers such as railings. Setting up a table and having a meal there is a 'negotiated function' that I as an individual can actualize.
