Bryan Avery RIBA is a London based architect, born in Berkshire, England in 1944.[3] After his childhood years spent in the New Forest in Hampshire, he studied architecture at Leicester College of Art (now the De Montfort University), followed by a MA in the History and Theory of Architecture at Essex University under Professors Joseph Rykwert and Dalibor Veseley.[4]

He established his own practice Avery Associates Architects in 1978. The practice has built a wide range of projects ranging from theatres and museums to offices and educational buildings, many of which have won respected awards.[5]

He published a book "Fragments of Wilderness City" (ISBN 9781904772583) in 2011 which describes his work and theory.[6]
