The Catalan architect Josep Lluís Sert i López brought the modernist aesthetics of the Mediterranean to the Charles River, Massachusetts as Director of the Harvard Graduate School of Design, where Walter Gropius, as chair of the Department of Architecture, had introduced a modernist curriculum. Emigré architect, planner and educator, exponent of the ideas of Le Corbusier and the CIAM, Sert continued the European modernist trajectory in America.
