Eiffel Tower Paris is a technical and architectural challenge from the industrial age
Built by Gustave Eiffel for the 1889 World Expo, the tower is 300 metres high (not counting antennas) and is remarkable for the ingenious nature of its metal structure and the technical prowess evidenced by its construction. The tower was originally fitted with a spiral staircase and a hydraulic lift. The monument was designed to withstand a 70 cm oscillation range at the summit as well as significant thermal expansion.
