Simon Sadler


Simon Sadler is Professor of Architectural and Urban History and Chancellor’s Fellow at the University of California, Davis.

His books on the ideological history of late-20-century vanguard architecture include Archigram: Architecture without Architecture; Non-Plan: Essays on Freedom, Participation and Change in Modern Architecture and Urbanism (with co-editor Jonathan Hughes); and The Situationist City. 

Sadler’s current research centers around countercultural design, the legacies of the late avant-garde, and the ways in which design is employed to model complicated concerns and processes. Recent articles and essays include “L’Architecture dans le Salon: The Civic Architecture of a Projective Modernism,” in  Architecture from Neo-Avant-garde to Postmodern in Britain and Beyond; “Fast Forward and Rewind” (with Christina Cogdell), in Volume; and “Cast Adrift,” in Consensus and Collapse.
