How is living matter organized in space and time during multicellular morphogenesis? A comparative view across animals and plants suggests that the answer may lie in reusing just a few geometric and topological organ-sculpting motifs. Using examples, I will discuss the qualitative and quantitative basis for three of these motifs: elongation, lumenization and folding.
