Cecil Walter Wood (6 June 1878 – 28 November 1947) was a New Zealand architect.

Wood was born in Christchurch, Canterbury, New Zealand in 1878. He designed many heritage buildings in New Zealand including Wellington Cathedral of St Paul and the Memorial Dining Hall at Christ's College. He became an associate of the New Zealand Institute of Architects in 1914, a fellow in 1926 and was elected the President in 1937. His ashes were interned in the ambulatory of St Paul's Cathedral.

He had several trainee architects work for him who became very successful themselves, including, Heathcote Helmore, Guy Cotterill and Paul Pascoe. For a time, Miles Warren worked with him.
