Perhaps brutal but not really brutalism, most Brutalist buildings are not boxy, symetric or simple.

Officaly yes but there are some differences Brutalist buildings are not so functional, they are often overcomplicated with many ramps and stairs that sometimes seem to be used only for decoration. There are also some sort of concrete ornamentations so in a way it reminds more of pomo rather than classical modernism but with more taste.

And in some 30-50 years people will regret it was demolished, the same way people are today regretting the destruction of many 19th century buildings....

Hated it at first, especially when I found out that a whole terrace beautiful Georgian houses had to be buldozed to make way for it, but walking past it every day has made me appreciate it more and more It's quite elegant for a brutalist style, and I like the novelty of that

I usually don't like brutalist stuff but the Republic tower in Melbourne is one I like. Purely exposed concrete and black windows never looked so good
