About Anthony Perry Associates

Anthony Perry A.A.Dipl (Hons)

Anthony Perry has maintained a working interest in a wide range of architectural matters from initial and detailed design to project management. With a history of both commercial and private commissions within Great Britain and the Middle East, he continues to lecture and advise on design and planning matters, applying his wide and valued experience to his practice in Hampshire.

Anthony Perry was educated at the multi-national Nicosia Grammar School, Cyprus and at the Chichester High School, Sussex. Following early architectural experience with Seligman Snow & De Saulles in Hertfordshire, he graduated from The Architectural Association School of Architecture, London, in 1967. A year later he became a Registered Architect (A.R.C.U.K., London) and an Associate of the Royal Institute of British Architects. As an assistant to Professor Emeritus Michael Brawne (Michael Brawne & Associates, London, WC1) he assisted in achieving 2nd prize in the Bettws Comprehensive School Competition, Newport, Wales. During the 1970s he was responsible for a wide variety of architecture projects and also for national Fine Art Exhibitions at major venues: The Victoria & Albert Museum, The Tate Gallery and The National Gallery. Later in the 70s, he established the Middle East (Qatar) multi-disciplinary Partnership of Rice Perry Ellis & Partners growing to specialise in significant housing projects in hot, arid climates and in high performance sports buildings and stadia in the same conditions. His contribution included the widening of its operations to Dubai and Hong Kong (typical contracts exceeded UK £100million in 1984).
