Benjamin Dean Wyatt of the Wyatt architects

Benjamin Dean Wyatt was an English architect who lived from the 18th to the 19th century and was part of the Wyatt dynasty of architects that practiced their craft in the country throughout the 18th and 19th centuries. Benjamin himself was the son of James Wyatt and he received his early training in architecture under the tutelage of his father.

It is highly probable that Benjamin Dean Wyatt utilised many of his father's teachings in his own work, but it gradually became clear over the years that he could stand on his own merits.

For instance, he won the competition that was held to rebuild the Drury Lane Theatre in the city of London when he was not even 30 years of age. His publication of the book Observations on the Design for the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane followed soon after, in the year 1813.

Benjamin Dean Wyatt would also follow in his father's footsteps as the surveyor at Westminster Abbey, a position that he held from 1813 to 1827.

Wyatt also had an equally skilled brother named Philip William, and together the two designed the Crockford's Club in St James's Street.

Other Wyatt-designed structures of note were the Apsley and the Lancaster Houses.
