After moving to America, he landed in Los Angeles and completed the Lovell Health House in 1929, still recognized as a Masterwork of Modernist Design. He designed hundreds of projects around the world and is known for his conceptual and practical, steel and glass designs, with a vision towards environment, ecology, and livability.
