For Professor John L. Taylor, it was the obvious choice for Placebook

This is an outstanding building which in terms of architecture, planning and urban design quality is second to none.

Even Pevsner Hull and East Riding sings its praises.

Professor John L. Taylor OBE has been the client on several projects with BDP including Bretton Hall College where he was college Principal. A qualified architect and town planner, but career-long academic, he currently chairs the Dental Quality Control Panel for the Royal College of Surgeons, and is a lay council member of the Royal College of Radiologists.
