It seems it's a polarizing building. It's been listed many times as the ugliest building in the world (and onestly I think it's truly brutalism at its worst, dark, oppressive and simply ugly).
While in the last page I absolutely love the Escola de Administração Fazendária of Pedro Paulo de Melo Saraiva (for some reason I thought it was built by Niemeyer). Basically organic architecture with concrete.

Brutalism is one of the best architectural styles for university and government buildings. The interior of the SOAS Philips Building is great
