Gustave Eiffel (1832 - 1923) was a French engineer who participated in several important constructions, the best known being the Statue of Liberty in New York and the Eiffel Tower in Paris. Eiffel finished his studies in 1855, graduating as a chemical engineer; a year later, he met Charles Nepveu, a businessman specializing in metal constructions. After acquiring a metal construction studio, where he developed new techniques, he designed the Eiffel Tower, which was built between 1887 and 1889.

The Eiffel Tower, located in Paris, is the symbol of France and the most visited paid monument in the world. It was designed by Gustave Eiffel to be the entrance to the 1889 Universal Exhibition.
