25 Feb-12 June 2005. There is still time to catch the exhibition organised by the Joan Mir Foundation dedicated to Josep Llus Sert, a prolific 20th century Catalonian designer and close personal friend of Mir. Born in 1902 and a leading member of the Gatcpac Catalan architecture group. With the triumph of Franco over the Republican movement in Spain, Sert moved to the United States to continue his career. The exhibition features biographical information about Sert the architect, urban strategist and university professor, as well as in-depth look at his career. Spanning over half a century the range of works includes his early works from 1928-1939 in Barcelona, followed by the period of exile in New York (1939-1956). During the latter phase Sert became involved in urban planning in Latin America based on the ideas of the "Functional City". The final period (1956-1980) took place in Cambridge Massachusetts, while Sert was a dean at Harvard Architecture School, and looks at projects he undertook for the university.
