Oxford Keble College illustration

I don’t usually illustrate (neo)classic architecture, but when I do, it’s the worst building you can find. Everyone who needed a wedding gift will understand. Keble College Chapel at Oxford University was described as “actively ugly” and “the ugliest building in the world”. A secret society was founded, entrance to which depended upon removing one brick from the College and presenting it to the society’s elders.The commonest red bricks was necessary for ordinary membership, a rarer white brick for higher-level membership, and one of the rarest blue bricks for chairmanship. The hope was that eventually Keble would be completely demolished! Priceless. Anyway, the wedding was nice.
