Simon Sadler quoted in NY Times
Jan. 20, 2015
A New York Times article, “A Counterculture Spirit Flourishes, Preserved Under Fiberglass Domes,” included Simon Sadler’s remarks about the student dwellings on the UC Davis campus.
Sadler, an architectural historian and design professor, said the continued appeal of the Domes is “counterculture redux.” Last year, he pointed out, students protested tuition increases with a mass walkout, and in 2011 they made global news when a group of seated demonstrators supporting the Occupy movement was pepper-sprayed by a university police officer in riot gear. “The Domes represents the conscience of Davis,” Mr. Sadler said. “It’s a base camp for a fairly hard-core interest among young people in sustainable communities.”
