The Colosseum, Rome, Italy
Big Ben, London, England
Statue of Christ the Redeemer, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco, USA
The Great Wall of China, China
This list is just a result of political correctness. The writer probably wanted to include all parts of the world by filling at least one construction of each continent in the list, even though some aren't really that impressive.

Wikipedia

The Atomium is a monument built for Expo '58, the 1958 Brussels World's Fair. Designed by André Waterkeyn, it is 103-metre (335-feet) tall, with nine steel spheres connected so that the whole forms the shape of a unit cell of an iron crystal magnified 165 billion times.

Tubes which connect the spheres along the 12 edges of the cube and all eight vertices to the centre enclose escalators connecting the spheres which contain exhibit halls and other public spaces. The top sphere provides a panoramic view of Brussels. Each spheres is 18 metres in diameter. Three spheres are currently (2008) closed to the visitors, others are easily reachable with escalator. The vertical vertex contains lift which has been very fast and advanced at the time of building.

The Atomium is one of the most visited attractions in Brussels today. In 2008 the Atomium will celebrate its 50th Birthday, with activities planned all year, including free admission for those turning 50 between April and October.
