Jose Lluis Sert was born in 1902 in Barcelona, where he studied at the School of Architecture. After the Spanish Civil War he moved to the United States and opened Town Planning Associates with Paul Lester Wiener and Paul Schulz. He taught at many universities, including Harvard, where he served as dean of the School of Design. Before his death in 1983 he returned to his native Spain. His legacy remains in the many great buildings he designed worldwide, including the Miro Foundation in Barcelona, the Holyoke Center in Boston and the Science Center in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The "American Architects" series is a collection of books devoted to significant figures of 20th-century American architecture. Each monograph offers a complete vision of the architect's work and photographs and drawings illustrate ten projects from each. As well as Jose Lluis Sert, the series examines the oeuvre of Richard Meier, Louis Kahn, Philip Johnson, Skidmore, Owings & Merrill and many others.
