Raise the historical landmark before the world expo and take a magnificent step back in time. Is the City of Paris any longer to associate itself with the baroque and mercantile fancies of a builder of machines, thereby making itself irreparably ugly and bringing dishonour? As Eiffel himself explains: "All the cutting force of the wind passes into the interior of the leading edge uprights. The tower project was a bold extension of this principle up to a height of metres - equivalent to the symbolic figure of feet. A team of constructors, who had worked on the great metal viaduct projects, were responsible for the to workers on site assembling this gigantic erector set. It's two years before the opening of the World's Fair in Paris and the plans have been finalized for what will be the crowning achievement - the Eiffel Tower. It was to be designed like a large pylon with four columns of lattice work girders, separated at the base and coming together at the top, and joined to each other by more metal girders at regular intervals. Will you finish the landmark before the big day? Enhance your historical knowledge of the landmark with many fun facts. On September 18 Eiffel registered a patent "for a new configuration allowing the construction of metal supports and pylons capable of exceeding a height of metres". Travel through the streets of 19th century Paris as you lead the construction in 50 levels. And for twenty years we shall see spreading across the whole city, a city shimmering with the genius of so many centuries, we shall see spreading like an ink stain, the odious shadow of this odious column of bolted metal. It received two million visitors during the World's Fair of The construction work began in January and was finished on March 31, Before coming together at the high pinnacle, the uprights appear to burst out of the ground, and in a way to be shaped by the action of the wind".

Moreover there is an attraction in the colossal, and a singular delight to which ordinary theories of art are scarcely applicable". Before coming together at the high pinnacle, the uprights appear to burst out of the ground, and in a way to be shaped by the action of the wind". The assembly of the first level was achieved by the use of twelve temporary wooden scaffolds, 30 metres high, and four larger scaffolds of 40 metres each. Each of the 18, pieces used to construct the Tower were specifically designed and calculated, traced out to an accuracy of a tenth of a millimetre and then put together forming new pieces around five metres each. Journalist Emile Goudeau describes the spectacle visiting the construction site at the beginning of The construction work began in January and was finished on March 31, Over there they were still working on the bolts: workmen with their iron bludgeons, perched on a ledge just a few centimetres wide, took turns at striking the bolts these in fact were the rivets. While engineers and workers are ready for the construction challenge, they are still in need of someone who will guide them throughout the entire process. The rivet workers All the metal pieces of the tower are held together by rivets, a well-refined method of construction at the time the Tower was constructed. On December 7, , the joining of the major girders up to the first level was completed. The pieces were hauled up by steam cranes, which themselves climbed up the Tower as they went along using the runners to be used for the Tower's lifts. Each corner edge rests on its own supporting block, applying to it a pressure of 3 to 4 kilograms per square centimetre, and each block is joined to the others by walls.

In the end the project was simplified, but certain elements such as the large arches at the base were retained, which in part give it its very characteristic appearance. Well then! Will you finish the landmark before the big day? Moreover there is an attraction in the colossal, and a singular delight to which ordinary theories of art are scarcely applicable". Considering the rudimentary means available at that period, this could be considered record speed. Bolting the joint of two crossbowmen. Lemercier, Paris Debate and controversy surrounding the Eiffel Tower Even before the end of its construction, the Tower was already at the heart of much debate. An extract from the "Protest against the Tower of Monsieur Eiffel", "We come, we writers, painters, sculptors, architects, lovers of the beauty of Paris which was until now intact, to protest with all our strength and all our indignation, in the name of the underestimated taste of the French, in the name of French art and history under threat, against the erection in the very heart of our capital, of the useless and monstrous Eiffel Tower which popular ill-feeling, so often an arbiter of good sense and justice, has already christened the Tower of Babel. Lines drawn tangential to each upright with the point of each tangent at the same height, will always intersect at a second point, which is exactly the point through which passes the flow resultant from the action of the wind on that part of the tower support situated above the two points in question. It's two years before the opening of the World's Fair in Paris and the plans have been finalized for what will be the crowning achievement - the Eiffel Tower. Now to what phenomenon did I have to give primary concern in designing the Tower? On December 7, , the joining of the major girders up to the first level was completed. Each of the 18, pieces used to construct the Tower were specifically designed and calculated, traced out to an accuracy of a tenth of a millimetre and then put together forming new pieces around five metres each.

To comprehend what we are arguing one only needs to imagine for a moment a tower of ridiculous Mad Mouse height dominating Paris,just like a gigantic black factory chimney, its barbarous mass overwhelming and humiliating all our monuments and belittling our works of architecture, which will just disappear before this stupefying folly. Over there they were still working on Buikders: bolts: Eigfel with their iron bludgeons, perched on a ledge just a few centimetres wide, took turns at striking the bolts these in fact were the rivets. The construction The assembly of the supports began on July 1, and was completed twenty-two months later. The tower project was Insider Tales: Stolen Venus bold extension of this principle up to a height of metres - equivalent to MMonument symbolic figure of feet.

Bolting the joint of two crossbowmen. Is it not true that the very conditions which give strength also conform to the hidden rules of harmony? First the pieces were assembled in the factory using bolts, later to be replaced one by one with thermally assembled rivets, which contracted during cooling thus ensuring a very tight fit. I hold that the curvature of the monument's four outer edges, which is as mathematical calculation dictated it should be

Bolting the joint of two crossbowmen. Selected from among projects, it was that of Gustave Eiffel, an entrepreneur, Maurice Koechlin and Emile Nouguier, both engineers, The Adventures of Perseus Stephen Sauvestre, an architect, that was accepted. Are we to believe that because one is an engineer, one is not preoccupied by beauty in one's constructions, or that one does not seek to create elegance as well as solidity and durability?
