I did the voir dire, but I could not find a thread for landmark-grade buildings.

Worse, "landmark" has a very specific meaning in some circles, while less-specific terms like "famous" are, well, less-specific.

So let's do Wiki'd Buildings: if its got a wiki entry, and it got a stamp, it's in!

First up: The Melrose House in Pretoria SA.
