Throughout much of the 20th century, José Luis Sert was a key player among the architectural avant-garde and an important advocate of the modernist movement, working closely with Le Corbusier, Walter Gropius, and the Congres Internationaux d'Architecture Moderne (CIAM). Among his best-known works are several international-style apartment buildings and the Joan Miró Foundation in Barcelona, the Maeght Foundation in Saint-Paul-de-Vence, France, and the American Embassy in Baghdad, as well as city plans for Medellin, Bogota, Lima, and Havana, among others. This monograph is heavily illustrated with archival photos, plans, and drawings of Sert's buildings, city plans, and publications, and also offers an overview of the avant-garde art and architecture movements of the time. 401.

Acerca de


Jose Luis Sert (1902-1983), architect and town planner, friend and collaborator of Le Corbusier, member of CIAM, and founder of the Grupo Este of the GATEPAC in Barcelona, took the Spanish architectural avant-garde of the thirties as the starting point for his work. Sert left Spain in 1939 to settle in the United States, where he eventually suceeded Walter Gropius as head of the Graduate School of Design at Harvard University. Among Sert's most representative works are the Fundacion Joan Miro and the Dispensari Antitubercolosi in Barcelona, the Fondation Maeght at Saint-Paul-de-Vence in France, the American Embassy in Baghdad and town plans for several cities in South America, including Medellin, Bogota, Lima and Havana. Through careful archival research, the author has assembled the entire legacy of Sert's projects and has reconstructed the profile of one of the greatest Spanish architects of the twentieth century. The book also conveys an excellent overview of the avant-garde art and architecture movements of the time, with illustrations of important CIAM meetings, art, sculpture and architecture by artists who influenced Sert.
