The aim was to demonstrate the technological evolutions made since the revolution. Among the 107 suggested ideas, Gustave Eiffel projects was selected, although, « Maurice Kœchlin & Émile Nouguier », two engineers working for Gustave Eiffel, were behind this huge project.
Gustave Eiffel loved the idea of building an iron tower. He bought the patent and provided all the necessary means to realize the project. The construction lasted 2 years during which hundreds of engineers, drawers and workers collaborated to realize this legendary edifice.
The “Dame de Fer” was the biggest technical prowess ever made in France and the world. Since then, it has become a symbol of France, receiving 5.5 million visitors each year from all over the world.
