Brookhaven College

-A A +A
1978, Pratt, Box and Henderson. 3939 Valley View Ln.

Brookhaven is part of the Dallas Community College District. The campus’s radial plan fans shed-roofed brick buildings out toward the perimeter parking lots, creating numerous sheltered inner courts. This basic concept, however, is not geometrically rigid. Individual buildings have many sizes and shapes, harmonized by the use of tawny brick and metal roofs with bold fascias.
