The shape of the building itself is modelled on the open-air Theatre of Marcellus in Rome. In 1994 the Theatre was described by the European Commission as "one of the architectural jewels of Oxford". It was designed as a place for "the enactment of university business", as well as ceremonies which had previously taken place in the University Church of St Mary the Virgin.
