St. Hedwigs Cathedral in Berlin Germany (built around 1750) is similar in design to the Pantheon (see links).

The Cathedral of the Sacred Heart, in Wellington New Zealand is similar in style to the Maison Caree and was built in 1910 (see links).

The Korean Presbyterian Church in Oakland New Jersey has a design similar to a modern version of the La Madeleine (see links).

As another example the Ukranian Catholic Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception in Philadelphia, PA (see links) was built in 1966 in the same style as the Hagia Sofia Cathedral built around 530 AD in Istanbul Turkey (then Constantinople).

Even some modern new churches like the Trinity Lutheran Church and School in Elkhart, Indiana (see image) have the design that can be linked to classical designs with similar look to the Maison Caree or the La Madaleine.
