Capability Brown


Lancelot Brown, better known as 'Capability Brown' (he won in the names category) was famous landscape architect in18th Century England. He described his garden designs in grammatical terms: "'Now there' said he, pointing his finger, 'I make a comma, and there' pointing to another spot, 'where a more decided turn is proper, I make a colon; at another part, where an interruption is desirable to break the view, a parenthesis; now a full stop, and then I begin another subject'"

All expression is a language; the grammar of the everyday.
