> It can be both brutalist and usonian.

See below.

> Brutalism is a style defined by materials and their use, usonian houses were/are defined by spacial relations and geometry, as well as relation to the ground plane.

This is true, but it is a one dimensional (single factor) definition of the aesthetics/style based on what the building looks like. The overall effect/expression of the building overrides the appearance.

Brutalism expresses an anti-humanist, fascist, power-of-the-state, individual-does-not-matter feeling, and is not human scale. A good example is Boston City Hall. https://www.google.com/search?site=&tbm=isch&source=hp&biw=1366&bih=633&q=boston+city+hall&oq=boston+city+hall&gs_l=img.3..0l10.3288.6641.0.7099.16.10.0.6.6.0.105.861.9j1.10.0….0…1ac.1.64.img..0.16.898.haVhxE6SvdQ If you’re walking on the sidewalk near this building, you fear that it is going to crush you.

Usonian houses are very humanizing, humanist, and human-scale.

The overall effect/expression of these buildings outweighs any visual attributes.

For a building to be both Usonian and Brutalist , it would have to be both humanist and anti-humanist.
