The self-described "largest online-database about worldwide architects and buildings", it contains plans and images of buildings both built and potential and forms a record of the architecture of the 20th century. The database uses a search engine which allows a particular project to be found by listing architect, location or key word.[1] It has been described by the librarian of the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation as "one of the most useful reference tools concerning architecture available on the internet."[2] References[edit]^ Royal Institute of British Architects.

Barrington was a sparsely developed, agricultural community until the arrival of brickmaking companies in the 1850s, which employed large numbers of French-Canadians and Italians. The construction of a railroad to Providence in 1855 further contributed to suburban development, attracting residents of neighboring urban areas and contributing to the development of manufacturing industries
