The Eiffel Tower
Transcript of The Eiffel Tower
By: Nina Clark & Marissa Gabriel-Vince
The Eiffel Tower was built by Gustave Eiffel for the 1889 Exposition Universelle (World Fair). It was built to commemorate the hundredth anniversary of the French Revolution. Gustave Eiffel is credited with designing the Tower. However, it was actually two lesser-known men, Maurice Koechlin and Emile Nouguier, who came up with the original drawings for the monument.
Born in Dijon in 1832
He was an engineer who graduated from the École centrale des arts et manufactures (Central School of Arts and Manufactures) in 1855.
He constructed hundreds of metallic structures around the world

Work on the foundations started in January 1887. The Eiffel Tower is made up of 18,038 pieces of bent iron and a half a million rivets. They didn't drill or shape anything on the site, if something didn't fit, they sent it back to the factory for altercation. The critical stage of joining the four legs at the first level was complete by March 1888. The main structural work was completed at the end of March 1889.
Ce que le Tour Eiffel Symbolise
(What the Eiffel Tower Symbolizes)
For most, the Tower is an inescapable part of Paris with hints of romance and champagne. The Eiffel Tower doesn't really mean much, but it used to. It has become a long-standing example of the progress of 19th century engineering. Within the city of Paris, the Eiffel Tower is centralized as a symbol of postmodern communication and travel. Outside of the French capital, the Tower exists as a sign for Paris and France.
The Eiffel Tower is located on the Champ de Mars in the seventh arrondissement of Paris, France, not far from the Seine River.
Address: Champ de Mars, 5 Avenue Anatole France, 75007 Paris, France
