Thanks for the comments.

In case anyone is interested, here is an article on brutalism. The interesting light is in no small part down to the amount of pollution in the air...!

I really like this as a photo -- I like the square lines of the house against the soft descending diagonals of the mountain. Interesting light on the house, too -- really makes it stand out from its background. Don't know that they are taking full advantage of the view, though. 8)

Fallingwater, it ain't (isn't) but I've seen greater brutality.

Excellent title. Yes, I am familiar with that approach in China. It will take a while to develop a new theme. Nice photo captures the situation very well.

I wonder if they build that to withstand a wilde fire?

It looks like it offers a good view of the mountain valley, but not much asthetics for itself. Even painting it forest green would soften it's placement a bit.

Though if I were to look at it with a designer's eye for improving it. I would likely cover the exterior with stone halves. It'd give it a more weathered older feel and the appearance more akin to an old stone fortress.
