Following the awards, Barrington architect David Andreozzi, will present an illustrated talk on “An Architect’s Path Towards the Relevance of the Contemporary Vernacular.”

Mr. Andreozzi graduated from Barrington High School in 1979, earned his art and architecture degrees at Rhode Island School of Design and currently has his practice based in Barrington and lives in Bristol, RI.

Over 25 years, Andreozzi has learned that, to be successful, both owner and architect should relate their project to the already built environment in terms of scale, the relationship of details and materials and local craftsmanship.

The plaquing program is free and open to the public.
