Charles Léon Stephen Sauvestre was the French architect who built the world-famous Eiffel Tower, in 1889 at Universal Exposition in Paris, France. Il a coûté francs pour construire la Tour Eiffel (It cost 260,000 francs to build the Eiffel Tower) The Eiffel Tower
The Eiffel Tower Continued The Eiffel Tower rises to a height of 985 feet and for over forty years it was the highest man- made structure in the world. The top may be reached by using lifts and stairs with the first platform being 189 feet, the second being 380 feet and the third at 906 feet above the ground. The structure is largely composed of triangulated sections.
More Eiffel Tower This allowed the engineers to build the tower so high. It was originally looked upon as a temporary structure, built for the 1889 Worlds Fair. But people enjoyed it so much and paid so much money to go up for the view, the French Government decided keeping it would be a good idea to raise money and attract tourists.
