Macmillan Dictionary:

Chateau de Versailles
"live differently"
An "unifying language":
cuts across age and income and culture
help people themselves find
a new way of living,
see spaces around them differently,
think about the resources they use differently
interact differently
replicate those actions
"There are so many things you can do, but ultimately, this is about something really simple -- through an organic process; through an increasing recognition of the power of small actions. We are starting to, at last, to believe in ourselves again, and to believe in our capacity, each and every one of us, to build a different and a kinder future, and in my book, that's incredible."
Symmetrical Gardening
In good order
Serious; Solemn

Design Naturally.
the profession or activity of designing
the areas outside buildings.

A stylish place for open-air driving was felt to be needed by many influential New Yorkers.

In 1853 the New York legislature settled upon a 700-acre (280 ha) area from 59th to 106th Streets for the creation of the park, at a cost of more than US$5 million for the land alone.
