IF anyone is more interested in the Belgian brutalist Juliaans Lampens.

You can read an online book with lots of pictures about his works here: http://issuu.com/toomas/docs/juliaan_lampens

That's because the style name is only coincidentally including the word 'brutal' in it. The name is based off of 'beton brut' which means 'rough concrete'. So basically any modern concrete-clad building can be classified as brutalist, or a mix of brutalism and another style.

I get that, but then tons of buildings could be classified as brutal.

It's actually a real structure. It's a observatory, on purpose designed like a giant robot. A reference to the industial past of the area.

That is industrial architecture. Brutalism has thick, usually angular forms made of concrete.
