Can anyone think of any interesting structures or landmarks on earth that was built in the recent couple hundred years?

It can be a bridge, landmark, highway, building, dam, etc. The construction can also be anywhere on Earth. I'm trying to come up with something different, a new idea for a creative science project. Thanks! :)

Mount Rushmore is pretty spectacular, Gateway to the West the St Louis Arch, The Eiffel Tower, the Golden Gate Bridge, One World Trade Center when it's finished will be the highest building in the United States just to name a few.

Were I looking for interesting structures ... I would look to the United Arab Emirates and Dubai. They're building quite a few new structures (since they don't have anything better to spend all that oil money on).

For structural ideas ... there seem to be a lot coming from Japan. Such as the pyramid city.

I think the "most fun" idea I've seen implemented ... is the "trampoline bridge" for pedestrians. Can't recall if it's in England or France.

Thanks for your ideas. I'll search that up.
