Description

A comprehensive collection of architect Jos Luis Sert's works, Sert - 1928-1979 complete work compiles half a century of architecture by the most international and influential Catalan architect of the twentieth century.

This book includes world famous projects such as Harvard University's Holyoke Center (1958), as well as previously unpublished works such as the 1935 school buildings in Martorell, Spain.

Sert's professional life is characterized by three main cities: Barcelona, where he was determined to introduce modern architecture; New York, where he took four different directions: teaching, professional practice, the possibility of founding a North American CIAM and the publication of Can Our Cities Survive?

And Cambridge, Massachussets, where Sert aspired to continue thelessons of the avant-gardes both in terms of architecture and of urban planning.

The book also includes articles written by Sert specialists such as Josep M. Rovira, Juan Jose Lahuerta, Jaume Freixa, and Carolina B.Garca, among others, whose work enable a greater understanding
of the relationship between Sert's way of approaching design, his contemporaries and his time.
