Patrick John Nuttgens CBE (March 2, 1930 - March 15, 2004) was an English architect and academic.

Patrick Nuttgens was raised in Piggotts Hill, near High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, one of 12 children. His father was stained-glass artist Joseph Nuttgens. His mother died when he was 7.

One day, when he was 12 and a student at Ratcliffe College, he walked off the rugby pitch with a terrible pain in his back and, within a day, was paralyzed from the chest down with poliomyelitis. He also suffered from multiple sclerosis, which had left him in a wheelchair since 1985.

He studied architecture and painting at Edinburgh College of Art and Edinburgh University. He met Bridget Badenoch, an English Literature student at Edinburgh University; they married in 1954. In 1962, he became director of the Institute of Advanced Architectural Studies, then professor of architecture at the University of York. In 1969, he was appointed as the first director of Leeds Polytechnic (now Leeds Metropolitan University).

He was awarded honorary doctorates by several universities, and was appointed CBE in 1983. His books include The Story of Architecture, The Art of Learning: a Personal Journey, The Home Front: Housing the People (1840-1990), York... the Continuing City (illustrated by Dr John Shannon), Leeds: The Back to Front, Inside-out, Upside-down City (1979) and The Mitchell Beazley Pocket Guide to Architecture.

Patrick and his wife Bridget had nine children, including Giles Nuttgens, the award winning cinematographer, and composer Sandy Nuttgens.
