Orange County Central Sheriff Headquarter
Also connected to the county jail, the combined sheriff’s complex is a single brutalist showcase. The headquarters is a two-story building, surrounded by an arcade and open hallways. Large cement columns run into cement beams holding up a substantial flat roof. The heavy look of the building is not only practical, but it gives the headquarters a somewhat unassuming look. It takes an up-close examination to appreciate the cool, cavern-like construction of the building. (2017)
