Who designed the Eiffel Tower?
The Eiffel Tower is one of the most famous landmarks in the world. The cost of the towers construction in 1889 was £260,000.
The Tower is named after the French engineer Alexandre Gustave Eiffel. The tower was designed to be the entrance arch for the Worlds Fair and it was one of a number of designs submitted as part of a competition. Alexandre Gustave’s construction company won the competition and so the tower became known as the Eiffel tower.
It was however an employee of Eiffel, Morris Koechlin a junior engineer of the Eiffel Construction business who designed the Tower.
