Barry, Sir Charles,

1795–1860, English architect. A leader in the revival of the Renaissance style of architecture in England (also called Anglo-Italian), he designed the Travellers Club and the Reform Club in London. He planned one of the most important works of the period, the Houses of Parliament (1840–60). In this project he designed a basically classical structure with neo-Gothic detail contributed largely by his assistant, A. W. N. Pugin.
