David Mocatta (1806-1882) was a British architect and a member of the Anglo-Jewish Mocatta family.
Mocatta studied in London from 1821 to 1827 under Sir John Soane and travelled in Italy. He was elected a Fellow of the Institute of British Architects (later the RIBA) in 1836.
Mocatta was the architect of the London and Brighton Railway, designing seven italianate railway stations. Mocatta also designed balustrades and a set of eight Italianate pavilions to ornament John Urpeth Rastrick's Ouse Valley Viaduct for the L&BR.
Mocatta House, a modern office development in Trafalgar Place, Brighton is named after David Mocatta.
