Great architecture for everyday buildings

What would you consider some great architecture for buildings or things that we normally think of as never worthy of discussing? For example, great architecture found with gas stations? Or McDonald's (stand-alone) or another fast food place? Or parking garages? Or parking lots? Etc.
