Interesting that you pick modern buildings I would pick a shophouse to be symbolic of Singapore.

As for Barcelona. As somebody posted the Sagrada Familia might be the most famous. For me Barcelona is gothic plus modernism so next to la Sagrada it' the Santa Maria del Mar.

For my hometown Amsterdam the symbolic building is a canal house for sure.

For Hong Kong the concrete buildings full of airco's and with outside plumbing represent the city much more than the shiny skysrapers posted here.

Salt Lake City Temple...Mormon Church world HQ

This is the mother Temple of the Mormon Church containing the Holy of Holies...the holiest room in Mormondom and the council chambers of the top governing bodies.

Hundreds of images of this Temple has been used worldwide to be a symbol of the Mormon Church...particularly the Golden statue of the Angel Moroni blowing a golden trumpet on top of the highest point.



This is also the largest Mormon Temple in terms of floorspace taking 40 years to build including having the freshly constructed foundations completely buried and plowed to resemble a field to protect the site from being desecrated by invading Federal troops sent to subdue the isolated Mormon population in their Mountain haven.

The shophouses in Singapore look pretty similar to those in neighbouring countries. I think a old symbolic building would be Raffles Hotel and maybe The Fullerton Hotel:
