The Doric Club 90th Reunion

The Doric Club, Oxford School of Architecture and Oxford Architectural Society have the pleasure in inviting you to a celebration of 90 years of The Oxford School of Architecture and Doric Club (1927 – 2017) on Friday 2nd June

In 1927 a group of young enthusiastic architects created the Doric Club – a get together to promote architecture with other aspiring architects in the city.  Within a few months a room was set aside in Turl Street on the second floor in a timber-framed structure, and the original School of Architecture (OSA) was born.

Since the 85th anniversary major changes have been made to the Headington Campus.  The main changes are the addition of Abercrombie Building, which is the home of architecture, and the new John Henry Brookes Building which includes a new library, teaching rooms and learning resources, cafes and shops.

 The 90th birthday celebration will commence in the Abercrombie Atrium at Oxford Brookes University  from 5pm where there will be a welcome drink and an opportunity to see the final year exhibition and have a student-led tour.

Guests are then invited to move to the Terrace where a hot forked buffet will be available  from 7pm and in addition a cash bar will be available for further drinks.  From 8.30pm to 9pm service will stop for speeches by Doric members.  At 10.30 last drinks will be available with guests departing by 11pm

Places for the event are limited and cost £30 each.  Book your tickets here
