Of course it is. The shape and material fit.

BTW that Chapel of San Pedro is absolutely gorgeous!!

The materiality doesn't suggest a predominance of exposed concrete in the design. It's there, but it looks more like any run of the mill 1960/70's building rather than some of the more obvious examples posted.

Brutalism doesn't have to strictly be raw concrete, plus for that building the concrete is painted white. The use of strong rectilinear forms and the angled concrete structure at the top are also traits of brutalism. There are also brutalist brick buildings.

It's not Miesan modernism/International Style (glass and steel) because those tend to have simpler forms than brutalism, and more glass.

1948?? Unbelievable! Even though it's approaching seventy years old, it looks more modern than quite a few buildings today.

I like this one, and Henry Moore sculpture too, but I wonder if this could be considered brutalism. I see just bricks in that facade and no concrete, and also stylistically to me it seems very different from what I would call a brutalist building.
Anyway, the Oakland museum is gorgeous!

As mentioned before, brutalism is more than just concrete surfaces. Its buildings have also very angular forms that often use less glass and more mass.

What else would you call that one?
