The Eiffel Tower was designed by Gustave Eiffel for the Universal Exhibition of 1889 held to mark the centenary of the French Revolution, and was built in 2 years, 2 months, and 5 days. A showcase of French civil engineering, the tower, standing at 324 meters tall, was seen as a triumph of technical and architectural prowess in the late nineteenth century.
