The east side of the Bodleian or Schools quadrangle, Oxford, dating from the early 17th century and (according to Wikipedia) so named because ‘it is ornamented, in ascending order, with the columns of each of the five orders of classical architecture: Doric, Tuscan, Ionic, Corinthian and Composite’. You can see the upper 4 orders here, though two of them are lost in the shadow.
