Barry was born in Johannesburg. He attended the Architectural Association School in London from 1924 where he remained for five years as a full-time student, qualifying with a diploma in Architecture in 1929. As a student he visited Italy and South Africa, gaining office experience in South Africa. He was elected an Associate member of the Royal Institute of British Architects in 1931. In 1931 he was still in England but his address was given as c/o The National Bank of South Africa, London. He seems to have come to South Africa in 1938, when he registered with the Institute of South African Architects. He retired in 1956. Towards the end of his life he was resident in the Channel Islands.
