Gus­tave eif­fel

In a time when engi­neer­ing in­ge­nu­ity and ar­chi­tec­ture is all the rage, Gus­tave Eif­fel stands above the rest. His work can be found through­out the world, from the Pest rail­way sta­tion in Hun­gary to the Statue of Lib­erty in New York City. But his most fa­mous work is the Eif­fel Tower, built in

1889 to mark the open­ing of the World’s Fair.

The tow­ers stands as a sym­bol of this time and

Paris. If you want to build the next iconic land­mark then he’s the man to go to.

ex­tra tip:

Al­though not re­spon­si­ble, Gus­tave eif­fel will find him­self em­broiled in a scan­dal in Panama. Best not men­tion that when shar­ing your idea for a new tower!
