Eiffel seems to be about as popular as Gehry around here - the tower was really designed by Sauvestre; Eiffel's work wasn't original ...............
"to a certain extent the tower was formed by the wind itself" - Gustave Eiffel. Architects may interpret this as they wish.
Eiffel worked with the sculptor Bartholdi on preparing the Statue of Liberty (for the Egyptians please note - Khedive Ismail decided that the statue of "Egypt carrying the Light of Asia" was too expensive so it was given to the Americans).
Now, if you want to see architecture and engineering working together then the Nice Observatory is ideal: Eiffel and the great maximalist architect Garnier.
