I did some fast googling but didn't find more info. Do you have more pictures and some information on the building? I'll try to google more extensively later.
Well the campus was designed by Claude Strebelle, A Belgian urbanist and architect born in Brussels. The only wiki page with some information is in French. http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Claude_Strebelle

Recently the building was converted to also burn wood pallets.
http://www.aasa.be/fr_FR/home/batime...iege-li-a.html

This is what I found on the site of the University:
http://www.ulg.ac.be/cms/c_18175/centrale-de-chauffe

Quote:
La centrale de chauffe (Claude Strebelle, 1966-1968) témoigne de la volonté de l'architecte d'allier esthétique et fonctionnalité. Sa structure pyramidale et son recouvrement par des ardoises seront utilisées également pour le poste central de commande. Cette centrale de chauffe dessert l'ensemble des bâtiments universitaires.
Durant cette première phase de travaux, Claude Strebelle était en charge de la coordination artistique et urbanistique de l'ensemble du domaine.
Translation:

In the central heating building (Claude Strebelle 1966-1968) the architect reflects the disire to combine aesthetics and functionality. The pyramidal structure , wich is covered in slates, houses te control center. The heating plant serves all the university buildings. During the first phase of the work, Claude Strebelle was in charge of the artistic and urban coordination of the entire campus site.

Louvain La Neuve, Belgium, University Library.

Louvain La Neuve was a new city, build on a giant concrete slab that covers a valley, cars, busses and trains drivee underground. Elevators bring people from the lower levels to the surface. The whole city center is build in some kind of Belgian Brutalism. If you would like to see some immages of this brutalist town looks like you can go here :http://www.pss-archi.eu/forum/viewtopic.php?pid=228563
Over the years offcourse, more modern styles where build in the city, but bulk of the buildings is brutalist, ofthen with bricks.

The square in the pics below is being refurbished as we speak.

Not sure about the side in the last photo, but the rest is beautiful!

Also the restaurant building at the ulg is fantastic.

Yeah, I think dry areas will preserve the original state of the concrete better, since there's less dripping grime and moss growth. But of course, proper care and maintenance will do far more for the building than its location.
