John Gwynn was a writer, architect and bridge-builder, who is well known for his writings on the monuments of London and most notably, St. Paul's Cathedral, a well as the needs and status of artists (including architects).  This second topic led to the formation of the Royal Academy of Arts in 1768.

His Plan for Rebuilding the City of London (reduced copy of the Wren Plan), is one of his earliest published works.
