First it would be interesting to look to when is such time, for I bet there are different appreciations of the period. In any case more likely it is in Irak and Iran where such kind architectural remains must be found.
The sumerian architecture is understood by many to precede culturally and temporally that of Egypt, to which it would have lent both models and technicians. Some go as far as to see also the meso-american pyramids come from such same source, or all from one even older than the sumerian one. There are even sculpted plans for ziggurats (statue of king Gudea) , and from memory I can't state if the remains standing of ziggurats can be thought of the same era than the writing of the genesis, or may be yes if you take its latest concretion. Were such the case, you would look for the achadian, babylonian and persian architectures, of which there are remains enough to trace some of their main characterictics.
