Oxford: the Tower of the Five Orders
Oxford: the Tower of the Five Orders
The magnificent tower forming the eastern entrance to the Schools Quadrangle, of the Bodleian Library. It is so named because the columns on each level represent the five orders of classical architecture: (from bottom) Tuscan, Doric, Ionic, Corinthian and Composite. It was built in 1613-19.
