New @ the A&A, Josep Lluís Sert: the Architect of Urban Design, 1953-1969

The career of Spanish-born architect Josep Lluís Sert (1902-83) began in 1927, when as a student in republican Spain he became an acolyte of Le Corbusier, invited him to Barcelona, then went to Paris to work for him. They shared an interest in painting and were life-long friends, and as a result of this early encounter with his hero, Sert, the subject of a new book from Yale, became a leading figure in Ciam, the Corb-led International Congress of Modern Architecture.
