Sir Percy Edward Thomas OBE (13 September 1883 – 19 August 1969), was an award-winning British architect, based in Wales for the majority of his life. He was twice RIBA president (1935-37 & 1943-46).
Percy Edward Thomas was born on 13 September 1883 in South Shields, the son of a sea captain from Narberth in Pembrokeshire, with whom the family often travelled. The family moved to Cardiff during the 1890s, and Captain Thomas died at sea in 1897.
Percy Thomas began work in a shipping office, but changed to a career in architecture on advice from a phrenologist. In 1903 he won the architecture competition at the National Eisteddfod of Wales in Llanelli. After several years working in England, he began collaborating with Ivor Jones of Cardiff, and they went into partnership in 1913
