Simon Sadler named Mellon Researcher
Simon Sadler was named a Mellon Researcher at the Canadian Center
for Architecture (CCA), Montreal, where he has joined the
Multidisciplinary Research Program “1945–1975:
British Culture for Architecture“.
The 18-month project centers on the social, economic and technological
shifts that took place in Britain in the period 1945–1975. Simon’s
project focuses on the way that post-war British design culture loved to “think the unthinkable,” exploring ways in which the architecture and institutions of the Welfare State could be relaxed, devolving power to “citizen designers.”
