Skytree and Shard?
I think the Tokyo tower is more famous than these two ones...

The Louvres pyramid is quite famous, finished in 1989... I hardly picture the Louvres without it now lol
I d say that the most 'iconic' 'building' in France (modern) is the Grande Arche... I m not sure it's very famous tho.

It is, but it's honestly nothing special and rarely advertised.

I think it’s a nice building and it seems like a blend of modern and traditional east Asian architecture.

Maybe, but it's indeed rarely advertised. The publicity on Taiwan (which isn't a lot) is mostly about the nature. It's not the most recognisable modern structure by any stretch of the imagination.

It was mentioned a lot just after its completion when it became the tallest building in the world for a while. Attention has waned since then though.
