Days of Oris is an architectural convention which takes place every year since 2000. It is a two-day event with lectures of prominent international and local architects. The convention takes place at the Vatroslav Lisinski Concert Hall and has about two thousand visitors.

Next to mentioned big Days of Oris, national Days of Oris (Spanish, Finnish, Japanese, Portuguese, French) regularly take place in Zagreb and Dubrovnik. Days of Oris have been organised in Ljubljana and Belgrade and in 2012 Days of Oris were held in Hotel Lone in Rovinj.

World famous architects but also radical and experimental authors have spoken at Days of Oris. So far Oris has welcomed more than 200 speakers from all over the world.

The concept of Days of Oris is supplemental to the magazine and the selection of speakers is the result of the prevailing international importance of the magazine and the network of associates and authors which Oris has developed through the years. Days of Oris always aim towards the balance of already established and new authors, as well as the generational and conceptual variety of speakers.
