I hope two examples for each architect will suffice.

Le Corbusier: Notre Dame du Haut (chapel), Ronchamps, France; and the
Assembly Palace, Chandigarh, India

Mies van der Rohe: the Seagram Building (375 Park Avenue), New York;
and Lake Shore Drive Apartments, Chicago

Richard Neutra: Kaufmann Desert House, Palm Springs, CA; and the
Lovell House, Los Angeles, CA

Renzo Piano: Pompidou Center, Paris; and the Menil Collection, Houston

Jean Nouvel: the Institute of the Arab World, Paris; and the Cartier
Foundation, Paris

Rem Koolhaas: Grand Palace, Lille, France; and the Netherlands Dance
Theater, The Hague, Netherlands

Toto Ito: The Tower of the Wind, Yokohama, Japan; and the Hotel P,
Hokkaido, Japan

Frank Gehry: the Guggenheim Museum, Bilbao, Spain; and the Experience
Music Project, Seattle, WA

Kazuyo Sejima: Villa in the Forest, Chino, Nagano Prefecture, Japan;
and Yokohama Port Terminal, Yokohama, Japan

Steven Holl: Cranbrook Institute of Science, Bloomfield Hills, MI; and
Museum of Contemporary Art, Helsinki, Finland

My source for all but three was the following excellent site for
anyone interested in architecture:

For the three not listed there, I consulted: (for Sejima) (his firm?s  own Web site) (for Ito)

Hope this meets your specs!
