more:

The Parthenon stands proudly as the centerpiece of Centennial Park, Nashville's premier urban park. The re-creation of the 42-foot statue Athena is the focus of the Parthenon just as it was in ancient Greece. The building and the Athena statue are both full-scale replicas of the Athenian originals.

Originally built for Tennessee's 1897 Centennial Exposition, this replica of the original Parthenon in Athens serves as a monument to what is considered the pinnacle of classical architecture. The plaster replicas of the Parthenon Marbles found in the Naos are direct casts of the original sculptures which adorned the pediments of the Athenian Parthenon, dating back to 438 B.C. The originals of these powerful fragments are housed in the British Museum in London.

The Parthenon also serves as the city of Nashville's art museum. The focus of the Parthenon's permanent collection is a group of 63 paintings by 19th and 20th century American artists donated by James M. Cowan. Additional gallery spaces provide a venue for a variety of temporary shows and exhibits.

The Parthenon · Centennial Park · Nashville, TN 37201

Well, as wierd as it might seem. France has not a lot of buildings built by foreigner. Only the Roman ruins and some things in Alsace. Even the English didn't stayed enough time in France to build anything.

Arch of Augustus



Porte de Mars (largest roman arch)



Pont du Gard



Maison Carrée (a rare roman temple that survived the christianisation of the empire, even the inside is still preserved)



Arènes de Nimes



There are others, many in southern France.

For Alsace, the minster of Strasbourg was certainly built by the Germans.



And the Kaiserpalast.

Sweden isn't exactly located in the Crossroads of Armies, and the few invaders never got very far, so there aren't any such buildings.
The only I can think of is a Thai pavilion the Thai built to commemorate the visit of their beloved king Chulalongkorn (even if it's not really historical, it will be with time ).

The Pyramid of Austerlitz was build by General Marmont in the honour of Napoleon. It is nearby the village of Austerlitz in Holland, not far from Utrecht.

 what what would the english build that would be different from french architecture. This is the Platagenet empire fighting the french kings, it was  more like a civil war (most of the Platagenet empire was actually in France by previous inheritance and/or alliance). The Plantagenet dynasty started in anjou and Aquittaine originally, the architecture was obviousy similar in both countries, simply they would have to adapt the material available in each country, therefore both english and french architecture would seem different. The Angevin empire vs the capestian dynasty for instance, the castle built by the Angevin in France was exactly similar in term of architecture to those built by the capetian, despite the Angevin being king of England.

The Romans built the Porta Nigra in Trier:

That is probably the most famous foreign monument in Germany - apart from the Berlin Wall of which there are only scattered remnants.

This Egyptian temple in Madrid was donated by Egypt for the support to move the Abu-Simbel temple in order to facilitate the construction of the Assuan dam. Egypt also donated temples to various other countries.

@Clovis

I wasn't talking of the Angevin but of the 100 years' war, I don't count the Angevin Empire as English. Though you can find tons of landmarks built by French in England, the Tower of London (William the Conqueror), Lincoln (Remigius), Canterbery (William of Sens) and York (forgot the name of the architect) cathedrals.....

Your picture shows the Ramses II Obelisk, right?

I have seen this structure in a lot of history books and on a PBS (public TV) special. It is an awesome building. I am sure the Germans take a lot of pride in it even though it was built by the Romans who their barbarian ancestors pushed out. I am part German-
