WJ BARRE, 1830-1867: A Vigorous Mind by Dr Paul Harron, 2021, 230pp, Hard Back.

The architect William Joseph Barre (1830-1867), a native of Newry, Co. Down, who moved his practice to a burgeoning Belfast in 1860, was one of Ulster’s very best Victorian designers. His body of work, the product of an intense but tragically short life, is worthy of capture and is celebrated anew in this comprehensive, beautifully illustrated monograph by Dr Paul Harron – a further title by the author in the UAH’s ‘Architects of Ulster’ series.

Distinctive, original, eclectic, sometimes quirky and often dramatic, William Barre’s building designs form some of the richest components of Ulster’s built environment from the High Victorian period. From the landmark Albert Memorial Clock and the Ulster Hall in Belfast to Newry Non-Subscribing Presbyterian Church, St Anne’s Church of Ireland Church (Drumglass), Dungannon and the Riverside Presbyterian Church, Newry, to name but a few of his many remarkable church designs, as well as extraordinarily impressive mansions for industrialists such as Danesfort House (now the US Consulate) and The Moat, both in Belfast, nearly all his surviving buildings are full of visual interest.

NOTE: All orders of WJ BARRE, 1830-1867: A Vigorous Mind will receive a complimentary copy of Lyn Gallagher’s book on the Albert Memorial Clock (designed by Barre).

 

Architects of Ulster: Young & MacKenzie – A Transformational Provincial Practice 1850-1960 by Dr Paul Harron, 2016, 400pp, Soft Back.

Architects of Ulster : Young & MacKenzie documents the work of a vibrant Belfast-based architectural and civil engineering practice which was established in the early 1850s and survived for three family generations, quickly becoming pivotal to the transformation of Ulster’s built environment. This ‘powerhouse’ of provincial architecture designed large-scale keynote Belfast structures such as the Ocean Buildings and Scottish Provident Buildings as well as Robinson & Cleaver’s and Anderson & McAuley’s department stores along with scores of other buildings which make up much of Ulster’s architectural fabric. This richly illustrated book, containing over 600 colour photographs and many archival images, presents the work of the architectural and civil engineering firm of Young and Mackenzie.
