It seems that Brutalist architecture is more common in Europe and Latinamerica rather than the rest of the world.

And North America as well. Some of the finest examples of brutalist architecture are located in North America.

Surely I understand why you don't like it (cause some years ago I didn't like it too) but It's not so clearly "horrible". It's a good project with a interesting choice of materials, anyway i think that in the views of the pics I posted you can see in which sense it can have some "beauty".
