Little known fact: the architect of the Eiffel Tower was not engineering entrepreneur, Gustave Eiffel. When Eiffel’s engineers, Emile Nouguier and Maurice Koechlin, came up with the structural design for the tower, he turned to his friend to make it a project that could win a national competition. Sauvestre added the grand arches which (appear to) support the first level, as well as the heavy masonry feet at the four corners which visually anchor the tower.
