The ones I would add, (and sorry if I have missed people mentioning them), are:

UK -

Tower Bridge - Unique and so iconic
Battersea Power Plant - Many of the world know it thanks to Pink Floyd

Germany

Munich Olympic Stadium.

^I'd disagree on that

Germany: Bradenburg gate (much better known than Munich's Olympic Stadium or Berlin's TV Tower)

UK: Houses of Parliament

Spain: Sagrada Familia

Czech Republic: Prague Castle

Hungary: Hungarian Parliament

Sorry, you misunderstood me. I was giving additions to those already mentioned. I think the Brandenburg Gate is one of the great symbols of Germany, and the Houses of Parliment are very iconic. However these had already been mentioned.

I should have made my post clearer.

I'd rather say Charles Bridge or Tyn church. Or perhaps even the Dancing House by Gehry is even more famous.

Other than the Belem Tower and Jerónimos Monastery, I think that the Pena National Palace in Sintra is another iconic monument in Portugal. No other city/town represents romanticism quite like Sintra.

UK: Houses of Parliament
Finland: Stone church in Helsinki
Norway: ?
Sweden: ?

Ireland: ?
Denmark: ?
Germany: Reichstag
Austria: ?
Belgium: Atomium
The Netherlands: ?
France: Eiffel Tower
Luxembourg: ?
Italy: Coliseum
Portugal: ?
Spain: Guggenheim Museum
Greece: Acropolis

Countries where I've put a question mark indicate that I couldn't think of 1 building in the entire country that I could name. This exercise was quite an eye opener as I know lots of other things about all of them.

Sure they are, but they are not part of OPs original list with countries he/she was interested in.

UK - Big Ben + Houses of Parliament
Finland - Finlandia Hall
Norway - Oslo City Hall or Heddal Stavkirke
Sweden - Turning Torso
Switzerland - Bundeshaus
Ireland - Dublin Parliament Building
Denmark - SAS Royal Hotel or Copenhagen Opera
Germany - Neuschwanstein
Austria - Schloss Schoenbrunn
Belgium - Atomium or Brussels Town Hall (If the Atomium don't count as building)
The Netherlands - Cubic Houses or the windmills
France - Eiffel Tower or Louvre (if you don't count the Eiffel Tower as building)
Luxembourg - Philharmonie Luxembourg
Italy - The Colosseum
Portugal - Belem Tower
Spain - Sagrada de Familia
Greece - Acropolis of Athen

This threat gave me the question, what actually is a building, and what isn't?
Is the Oresund Bridge a building? The Arc de Trioumph? Or the Eiffel Tower?

For Ireland i'd say the customs house famous for the easter rising. For Switzerland i'd say the Zytglogge!

Hmm I think it's all about personal preference. But I myself find eastern european cities a great alternative to the traditional 'heavyweights' like Paris and London. Bratislava is a personal favorite of mine I like the old town architecture and the atmosphere, it's the perfect sized city for me.
