Architect Richard Neutra coined the term biorealism to describe what he considered to be the inherent and inseparable relationship between man and nature. With the institute for survival through design, he sought to bring these two into greater harmony. In fact, his many residential commissions, professional buildings, and housing estates ingeniously figure natural elements into their formation; water-covered rooftops become upper-level reflecting pools and floor-toceiling sliding glass walls transform static living spaces into scenic panoramas. These considerations, however, are not artificially introduced as to imitate nature, but rather as a means of connecting the inside to the outside world.

1 Projects Lovell health House Dr. Philip Lovell said "How can we design a residence that would enhance the health and well-being of its inhabitants?" Designed a steel skeleton Was the first residential building in the USA to have a steel Structure . Was heavily influenced by the interest of the steel industry to showcase its products. Neutra achieved the most economical method of supporting the glass and allowing a certain amount of window washing from inside. The construction of a full-scale swimming pool with diving board suspended above grade—long before mass pool industry was born—must have been revolutionary in its time.

Kaufman House

Kaufmann Desert House Commentary "The  Kaufmann house, Palm Springs, 1946, moved in the direction of the pavilion, which is Neutra's last development in domestic architecture. Horizontal planes resting on horizontal planes hover over transparent walls. The material loses its importancemagnificent as the dryjoint stone walls are in themselvesand the gist of the house is the weightless space enclosed. The victory over the front door is almost complete; it is reached by slow stages, like the Mexican house whose entrance on the street leads through a garden to an unemphasized door."
