Barre, William Joseph

Barre, William Joseph (1830–67). Irish architect from Newry, Co. Down. He assisted Thomas Duff until the latter's death, and established his own practice in 1850, later (1860) moving to Belfast, where he designed several important buildings, including the Italianate Ulster Hall (1859–62—one of the largest music-halls in the British Isles when built), the Second Pointed Duncairn Presbyterian Church (1860–2), the polychrome round-arched Moat, Old Holywood Road (1863–4), Clanwilliam (later Danesfort) House (1864), the polychrome Lombardic-Romanesque Methodist Church, University Road (1864–5), the Venetian palazzo of Bryson House, Bedford Street (1865–7), the Gothic Revival Albert Memorial clock-tower (1865–9— beautifully restored 2000–2), and the opulent round-arched former Bank at Castle Junction (1864–9), encrusted with lavishly carved detail. His buildings were florid and eclectic, with robust ornament.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
