We study how a two-dimensional square sheet of droplets evolves to the preferred triangular lattice. The rearrangement can be induced either by an impurity seed for flat sheets or by curving the sheet. We analyze the propagation of transformation fronts and the spatial reordering subsequent to the initial perturbation.
