The Eiffel Tower, named after the engineer, Gustave Eiffel, was erected on the Champ de Mars in Paris in 1889 as the processional arch to the Paris World’s Fair. At first panned by some of France’s leading artists due to its revolutionary design, the Eiffel Tower has since become one of the world’s great wonders. Until 1930, this iron lattice tower was the world’s tallest man-made building and it remains the tallest structure in Paris to this day. Engineer Eiffel called the proposed building ‘not only the art of the modern engineer, but also the century of Industry and Science in which we are living, and for which the way was prepared by the great scientific movement of the 18th Century and by the Revolution of 1789, to which this monument will be built as an expression of France’s gratitude.’ Eiffel acquired a permit for the Tower to remain in place for 20 years and it was slated to be dismantled in 1909, but was kept by Paris as a communications tower and is now recognized as a cultural French icon.
