It looks like someone tried to do a makeover on a brutalist building, but it was their first attempt. Also, this is Ottawa. It never turns out as rendered.

I'm not getting anything from what you are saying when I look at it. I'm sorry the design has some way of making your eyeballs move away the roof-line which was clearly designed to draw your eyes upwards. You should also do a little research on what the Brutalist movement was all about, You will never find flowing curves in a Brutalist design.
