Barry, Charles, the elder (English architect, 1795-1860)

Note: Born 23 May 1795; died 12 May 1860. Charles Barry was articled in 1810 to Messrs Middleton & Bailey, surveyors, of Lambeth, where he stayed for six years. From 1817 to 1820, Barry travelled to France, Italy, Greece, Turkey, Egypt, Syria and Palestine after which he set up practice in London. He was responsible for over sixty executed schemes, including the Houses of Parliament and the New Palace of Westminster; his buildings are noted for their beautiful planning. Barry is said to have hastened and popularized the reintroduction of a chaste Italianate architecture to Britain in the late 1820s. Though he worked in a variety of styles and is often labelled as one of the founders of 19th-century eclecticism, Barry was most often an advocate of Grecian ideals. He was knighted in 1852 and elected Associate of the RIBA in 1842, Academician in 1844 and was Gold Medallist in 1850. He was also member of many foreign academies. British architect.
