Using a symmetry-based atomic scale theory of lattice distortions, we demonstrate that elastic textures, such as twin and antiphase boundaries, can generate intricate electronic heterogeneities in materials with strong electron-lattice coupling, as observed in perovskite manganites and other functional electronic materials.
