Founding partner of Chapman Taylor dies aged 89
Jane Durham, one of the three founding partners of Chapman Taylor, has died aged 89.
She, John Taylor and Bob Chapman set up the practice in May 1959 in offices on Trafalgar Square, at considerable personal risk.
They began with small residential projects but early on received the commission that made their name: the building that would become the headquarters of the Met Police. New Scotland Yard was only demolished last year to make way for a block of flats designed by Squire & Partners.
