Living in Central Europe, the countries you usually travel extensively are not really underrepresented and also very active on the T-List.

From my country Switzerland) I would like to see the Old Town of Lucerne on the t-list. On Germany's T-List I miss Rothenburg (on the FTWHS list). From the other countries I visit frequently I miss the Corinth Canal in Greece, and Aigues Mortes in near Nimes, France.

A fair few of my wishes ended up on the Top 50 missing exercise most notably: Olympic Park Munich, Baikanour Cosmodrome/ Kennedy Space Center, Chicago School architecture

I've been in the USA a lot recently, I know winterkjm has provided a fair few above, but these are some of my additional ideas. Will come back with some other non USA ones later.

USA
-Sites of the Manhattan Project
-Mid-century Modern Architecture of Palm Spring
-Case Study houses of Los Angeles
-Neo-futurist architecture of Eero Saarinen (TWA Terminal at JFK Airport, Gateway Arch, Dulles Airport...)
-Mormon Pioneer Trail - An American Exodus

My list for Germany. The country is already well represented, but still some potential to fill some gaps.

- Olympic Park Munich
- Tempelhof Airport
- TV tower Stuttgart
, the first TV tower built from concrete, and in my opinion the most beautiful tower basket

- Radom Raisting, the first terrestrial radio station in Europe for the communication with satellites, e.g. used for the live transmission of the first moon landing and the Olympic Games in 1972

- Liebig's Laboratories at Gießen, https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Liebig-Museum
- AEG turbine factory by Peter Behrens, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AEG_turbine_factory
- Extension of Zollverein Essen, eg Zeche Zollern, Hansa Cokery, Henrichenburg boat lift, metallurgical plant Duisburg, Gasometer Oberhausen

Not sure about this - France has Pleumeur-Bodou and UK has Goonhilly Down (Unless you don't consider UK to be a part of "Europe"!!) both used for Telstar in 1962 and both are preserved monuments at National level
See

and
