Eiffel Tower lovers, this ideabook is for you. Gustave Eiffel’s accomplishment of engineering welcomed and wowed the crowds in the 1889 World’s Fair (which, in an attempt to top it, inspired Ferris to style his renowned wheel for the 1893 Columbian Exposition in Chicago). The Eiffel Tower is possibly the most iconic and recognizable emblem of a town anywhere in the world.
Models one eighth the size of this exist in places like Cincinnati Ohio (the only one I have personally ascended — yee haw, King’s Island!) , and tiny models of it hang from our Christmas trees, sit among books on our shelves and have been built into everything from salt shakers into doorstops.
This site-specific mural in Seattle lets the Eiffel tower stand up to the Space Needle; the two towers were constructed for World Fairs, about 73 decades apart. Incidentally, whatever happened to World Fairs? I feel like we are missing out on all sorts of mad structures without them these days.
