Eifel Tower, Paris, Île-de-France, France

In 1889, Paris hosted an Exposition Universelle, World’s Fair, to mark the 100-year anniversary of the French Revolution. More than 100 artists submitted competing plans for a monument to be built on the Champ-de-Mars. When Gustave Eiffel’s company built Paris’ most recognizable monument for the 1889 World’s Fair, many regarded the massive iron structure with skepticism.
