Derby #218: New Landmarks

Hey, this Derby's over. When you're finished reliving past glories, check out what's going on in the Derby right now. It's probably even cooler. Or at least newer.

What happened to the days of landmarks to human achievement for no greater reason than the fact that we could do it? When will we ever again live the heady times of World's Fairs and Space Needles, Gateway Arches, and the like? Decorative, purposeless architecture is the best kind of architecture in our opinion, so we're asking you to come up with new landmarks for the world to enjoy. Sure, they can relate to a specific city or area (they don't call Le Mars, IA the Ice Cream Capital of the World for nothin'!), or maybe they'll just be some interesting and innovative building you think needs to be constructed. Let fly! Within these rules:
