Frank Llloyd Wright

Paper details:

Frank Lloyd Wright relied on basic geometry—primary forms—that he considered had symbolic meaning. These primary forms can be observed around the globe and over time.

How can we explain the presence of similar visual motifs in diverse cultures? If differing cultures have the same motifs, are the meanings of these motifs the same? If not, why not? Cite specific examples in your discussion. In referring to visual motifs, consider not only surface patterns, like the frets, but also larger elements as part of architectural form.
