Sert, José Luis
Catalan Josep Lluís Sert i Lopéz

born July 1, 1902, Barcelona, Spain
died March 15, 1983, Barcelona

Spanish-born U.S. architect.

After graduating from Barcelona's School of Architecture, he worked with Le Corbusier in Paris. On his own, he designed the Spanish pavilion at the Paris World's Fair (1937). After moving to the U.S. in 1939, he worked in urban development for Bogotá and Havana, among other cities. He served as dean of the Graduate School of Design at Harvard University (1953–59), Cambridge, Mass. His work is best exemplified by his Peabody Terrace married-students' housing at Harvard (1963–65), in which high-rise and low-rise apartment buildings are harmoniously interconnected. His outstanding museum designs include the Maeght Foundation in Saint-Paul-de-Vence, France (1968), and the Joan Miró Foundation in Barcelona (1975).

Catalan in full  Josep Lluís Sert I Lopéz  
born July 1, 1902, Barcelona
died March 15, 1983, Barcelona
 Spanish-born American architect noted for his work in city planning and urban development.

      After graduation from the School of Architecture, Barcelona (1929), Sert worked with Le Corbusier and Pierre Jeanneret in Paris. From 1929 to 1937 he had his own architectural office in Barcelona; works from the period include apartment houses in Barcelona, weekend houses in Garraf, and a master plan for the city of Barcelona. He designed the Spanish pavilion at the Paris World's Fair (1937) in collaboration with Joan Miró, Alexander Calder, and Pablo Picasso.

      With the fall of Spain's Republican government in 1939, Sert moved to the United States and from 1941 to 1956 was a partner in Town Planning Associates, a New York City firm that engaged in city planning and urban design for a number of new or existing South American cities, including Bogotá and other Colombian cities, Chimbote in Peru, Ciudad dos Motores in Brazil, and Havana. Sert's master plans for these sites were notable for their integration of natural landscape features into the urban building scheme. Sert made prominent use of patios and other aspects of Mediterranean architecture in his innovative designs for large groupings of houses. From 1947 to 1956 Sert was president of CIAM (Congrès Internationaux d'Architecture Moderne). He became a U.S. citizen in 1951. In 1953 he was appointed dean of the Graduate School of Design and professor of architecture at Harvard University, a position he held until his retirement in 1969.

      Sert's importance in the field of comprehensive multifamily housing rivals that of Le Corbusier. A notable example of the work carried out by his Cambridge, Mass., architectural office is the Peabody Terrace Married Students' Housing at Harvard (1963–65), in which a cluster of high-rise and low-rise apartment buildings are harmoniously connected with each other. Two outstanding examples of museum design by Sert are the Maeght Foundation (1968) at St.-Paul-de-Vence on the French Riviera and the Miró Centre for the Study of Contemporary Art, Barcelona (1972–75), which houses works by Miró.
