Was it brick? If so, they should have left it unpainted.

Yes I think it was brick but they removed the brick with two concrete slabs in each quadrant as can be seen the pictures.

Rather strange decision but from what I've noticed in countries where brick architecture is more common people don't seem to care about it's preservation too much

Teodoro González de León certainly has some amazing buildings. His long time associate Francisco Serrano came here to Guatemala to give a lecture in the Mexican Embassy (designed by both of them) just after Teodoro died. One of the best lectures I've ever attended to. Here's my favorite project from them:

Mexican Embassy, Berlin, Germany, by Teodoro González de León and Francisco Serrano (2000)
