Without knowing it, many Americans are already familiar with Maya designs. This is because Maya decorative motifs were a major element in the art deco buildings constructed in significant American cities during the 1920s and 1930s. Architect Frank Lloyd Wright was heavily influenced by Maya design. Among the best-known surviving Maya-influenced buildings in the U.S. are the Mayan Theatre in Los Angeles, the Fisher Building in Detroit and the Giacomo, originally known as the United Office Building, in Niagara Falls, New York.
