if we count the Middle East (and, by extension, North Africa - I know that doesn't make sense geographically) there's plenty of moorish architecture in Europe, a lot of it in Spain. And let's not forget Neo-Byzantine churches in Serbia and even Britain (on which there's a marvelous thread somewhere around here)

This isn't really 'Asian inspired' architecture though - that's just Asian architecture in another country. I think we're looking for places outside Asia where the Asian influences are there in otherwise regular buildings? Not sure.

You're welcome.... here's another one. The Royal Amwaj Resort on the Palm Jumeirah. It's currently under construction, but you can see the clear Thai influences

Maybe not 100% OT, but on the grounds of the royal palace just outside of Stockholm there's The Chinese Pavillion. Asian inspired "chinoiserie" built in 1753.

^Lovely! Love the baroque elements, too! (if that's what they are)

I'm going to have to add a weird oddity to this list, from the place where my parents live. It's a building known to motorists all over The Netherlands, and the village's most famous landmark, without doubt.

Granted, this is just a fake 1980's (or thereabouts) facade of the most horrific nature, but it's somehow special to me. It was built for a huge Chinese restaurant, set up by Chinese businessmen. The business, however, failed rather quickly (I guess they found out that a running a humongous Chinese restaurant at the deserted edge of a small village is not a sound business case) and a nation-wide hotel chain took over. Since then, they've announced their intentions on several occasions to strip away all the faux-Chinese decorations, but they never went through with it.

Good example. Europe has many fine examples of chinoiserie. The Drottningholm pavilion and the one in Sanssouci in Potsdam are among my favorites.

The most famous beer garden in Munich is the "Chinesische Turm" or the English translation "Chinese Tower"
