In 1956, the visionary architect Frank Lloyd Wright sketched out plans for The Illinois, a mile-high skyscraper that would accommodate 100,000 people, parking for 15,000 cars and enough office space to house the entire state government. Sheathed in aluminum and stainless steel, Wright's 528-story edifice could have been built, he believed, with available technology. But a significant barrier stood in the way: the required elevators would have taken up too much space.

Transcending Type-Stadium
JEANNE GANG

Designed for the U.S. Pavillion at the 2004 Venice Biennale, the stadium design explores the potential of an urban stadium to accommodate throngs of people and disappear when not in use. The proposed structure would employ a kinetic seating bowl, lifted 30 floors above street level, comprised of a series of transforming seating and support elements, many constructed to fold into the adjacent high-rise buildings in a dense urban center.

The Illinois does exist thanks to Skidmore, Owings and Merrill...though in a much less visionary form- Burj Dubai.

From the looks of these, you might also like CCTV Headquarters in Beijing, though it's not a proposal (it's u/c):

Would I be wrong in calling this a renewal of Brutalism?

Adrian likes things that could be easily replicated on a small scale by taping boxes together...

I understand what you are getting at, but strictly speaking, brutalism is the architecture of raw concrete (from "beton brut", meaning concrete). Scale isn't so much an element, although many of the brutalist buildings from the '60s & 70s - the university & civic commissions - can be kinda overwhelming. Unless the building is made predominately of raw concrete, it isn't brutalist.
