The Chapel of Reconciliation (in Germany) is a rammed earth building.  The rammed earth is made using clay mixed with ground up remains of the former church:
 
There are about 30,000 rammed earth buildings (dating mostly from the Ming and Qing dynasties) in Fujian Province, China:

"Interesting building in Tehran:"-I find disgusting.

The Chinese are excellent bridge builders since a very long time.  China has countless big rivers.
The Dong built beautiful bridges using wood rivets (no nails):

Wow, thanks Eric.
 
The exterior facade is very nice and the interior artwork is fabulous.
 
Preo, does your state or city have a particular architectural style?

I live presently in Fairfax County, Virginia, (home to the Pentagon and right across the river from Washington D.C.) where the norm is neo-colonial style architecture. Fairfax City sports a town hall and other governmental/public facilities styled in 18th century colonial influenced elements of architecture. I was born in Martinez, California (outside the cities of Oakland and San Jose), where more often than not architectural styles are whacky-new-wave models of architecture as well as traditional Spanish/Mexican style villa homes.

 
An example of colonial-style houses in Fairfax County:
