Exterior replacement panel?

So I have looked all around and cannot figure out what this is called and if there is anything special I need to do after I remove it while updating the exterior. It is an absolute eye-sore and I want to replace it with something that is flush with the brick. I am just unsure if there any major structural endeavors I will pursue in changing this over to something a little different. I will be installing engineered wood around the brick. Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

It looks to be a 1970's architectural "statement" that backfired . I can't imagine putting something that gosh awful ugly on a house. Is this the only one on the house like this? It doesn't appear to be structural as it isn't sitting on a footing. Do the bricks fall behind the edge of the protuberance or is this thing cut around the brick?

I've painted more than a few of them

Seems like the brick ended where the cedar started but I don't see any problem with ripping them off and then retrimming the window with something less obtrusive.

btw - welcome to the forums!
