And among the thousands of proposals, it was the idea of Alexandre-Gustave Eiffel that won the race. A renowned bridge builder and an expert in metals and architecture, the creative experts of Alexandre-Gustave Eiffel led to the construction of one of its kind architectures, Eiffel Tower. The first digging work of the Eiffel Tower in Paris was started on 28th January 1887.

Facts About Eiffel Tower:

Standing on a 5-meter high base, the Eiffel Tower in Paris is made up of four lattice-girder, which gradually narrows inwards as they join to form a single vertical tower which is 300 meters aka 986 feet high. Networks of girders have been used to connect the inward curving piers at two levels, which provides viewing platforms for tourists. Glass-cage machines, coming from the design of the US Company, Otis Elevator, were fixed at the piers to serve the purpose of elevators to climb the curve. Besides, the four semi-circular arches, located at the base of the tower, are a visual treat and play no part in the structural function. The Eiffel Tower is given a complete elevation of 324 meters (1,063 feet) by a television antenna at its top.

Eiffel’s idea was to erect a structure, which was light as well as equally strong. By making use of his expertise in the behavior of metal truss and metal arc forms under loading, he made an aesthetic monument that changed the face of civil engineering and architecture.

One of the most amazing facts of the Eiffel Tower is that it was built in the shortest span of two years (1887–89), employing minimal labor and less cost. During its inauguration in March 1889, Eiffel Tower was the structure in the world until 1930 seeing the completion of New York City’s Chrysler Building, however, it still manages to lure tourists from all across the globe.

The Architecture of Eiffel Tower:

There are three levels in the Eiffel Tower, the first two floors have restaurants, bars and other entertainment outlets for the tourists. The third or the top-level comprises of the highest observation deck in Europe. It is 276m aka 906 feet above the ground and is open for visitors. There are both stairs and lifts to escalate all the levels, but the top-level is mostly accessed by the lifts.  

Pride of France:

Names of about 72 French scientists, mathematicians and engineers have been engraved on the Tower by Gustavo as a token of appreciation for their contributions to the construction of the tower.

Aesthetics and Maintenance:

Though originally reddish, Eiffel Tower was later painted in bronze brown and has three shades that get darker towards the bottom. Every seven years, about 60 tons of paint is used to color the tower and prevent it from rusting and has been painted 19 times since its construction.

There is no wonder that the Eiffel Tower is one of the best places to visit in Paris and it is undoubtedly a must-visit place. One cannot miss out on this experience on their trip to France.
