Clemson Brooks Center

Brooks Center Plaza & Entry

Clemson University

Clemson, SC


The genesis for this project was the lack of accessibility and the circuitous route necessary for patrons to reach the theater from the drop-off point. This project includes the creation of a new “front door” not only on the existing building but to this end of campus. A new circular entry plaza creates an inviting pre- and post-function space for the Brooks Center while simultaneously gathering multiple existing circulation paths into one gateway to campus. Combined with a new vehicular drop-off, the new entry vestibule provides a convenient on-grade access to the main lobby.
