Doric Club

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/Doric Club (1927 – 2017) on 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 was born.

In June we are celebrating the schools 90th birthday with food and drinks in the atrium of Oxford Brookes University. If you would like to see this year’s student’s exhibition it will be open on the day and on the Saturday.  

Since the 85th Anniversary major changes have been made to the Headington Campus.  The main components of these changes are the addition of an extension to the School and the new John Henry Brookes Building on the campus which includes a new library, teaching rooms, cafes and shops. There will be students available to offer tours of the new building on the 2nd June.

Arrive from 5pm in the Atrium of the Abercrombie Building at Oxford Brookes University, Headington Campus for a welcome drinks and nibbles.

Guests are invited to move to the Terrace where food will be served 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
