You might be right, I never had to live nor work in a brutalist building. But we could say the same about greek and roman temples, castles, churches, or old industrial buildings, couldn't we? Should we then tear all of them down in order to make place for whatever the market is ready to absorb?

Lloyds Seeks New London Office in $100 Million Cost Push

https://www.bloomberg.com/news/artic...lion-cost-push

Quote:
Lloyds Banking Group Plc is in talks to lease a new London office with room for about 1,000 workers in an effort to consolidate its locations in the capital and help save 100 million pounds ($130 million), two people familiar with the plan said.

The U.K. bank is in discussions with law firm CMS Cameron McKenna LLP to lease about 100,000 square feet (9,290 square meters) of office space at the 125 London Wall building in the City of London financial district, the people said, asking not to be identified because the negotiations are private.

What Sampson House needs is a sensitive refurbishment. Maintain the original architectural integrity while bringing it up to modern standards.

This is demonstrably wrong, as brutalist buildings that are restored and not left derelict are very much sought after. See the Barbican or Park Hill after its refurbishment. Centre Point and the Balfron Tower will become luxury apartments and probably sell out very fast.
After they are restored, they end up better than like half the new buildings going up now.

A colossal disappointment, IMO. I don't know if it's the photo, but it looks like something from the 60s. I honestly expected much more from the cladding.
