More Than The Eiffel Tower – the Wondrous Buildings and Bridges of Gustave Eiffel

Gustave Eiffel was born in Dijon, France, in 1832. After graduating from college in 1855, Eiffel went on to work primarily in metal to build his strikingly modern buildings, bridges, and monuments. While we know him today as the designer of the Eiffel Tower (1889), he worked on many other incredible structures during his career. Between 1861 and 1911 Eiffel and his design firm created beautiful monuments and buildings all over the the world.
