< Grammaire des arts du dessin . 1863 [Blanc]. This books is an attempt to present all the arts (but mainly architecture) as ruled by a grammar (for instance the three classical orders: Doric, Ionian, Corinthian). Since then, this approach has inspired a lot of architects, as shows at length [Picon], and perhaps even the Cubists through Cézanne?
- [Stiny] George Stiny and
James Gips propose a grammar of forms, inspired by the
generative grammars of Chomsky. This approach is never
quoted in image processing or algorist literature. But she
was never forlorn, as shows a review presented in 1999 by
Gips during a MIT symposium.
