Sir Matthew Digby Wyatt (28 July 1820 - 21 May 1877) was a British architect and art historian who became Secretary of the Great Exhibition, Surveyor of the East India Company and the first Slade Professor of Fine Art at the University of Cambridge. Born in Rowde, Wyatt trained as an architect in the office of his elder brother, Thomas Henry Wyatt. He assisted Isambard Kingdom Brunel on the London terminus of the Great Western Railway at Paddington Station (1854) and later designed a considerable expansion to the Bristol station, Bristol Temple Meads (1871-8). He also enlarged and rebuilt Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge (Now the Judge Institute of Management; 1866). He designed the Rothschild Mausoleum in the Jewish Cemetery at West Ham.show more
