The Eiffel Tower is a frame structure. Which means it is made up of different parts. It is one of the most famous frame structures in the world. It is the tallest structure in Paris standing at 324m tall and is the most-visited paid monument in the world. The Eiffel Tower is an iron lattice tower. It was named after Gustave Eiffel who's company designed and built the tower. Some forces that act on the Eiffel Tower are wind (torsion) and compression which is why the bottom of the tower has to be stronger than the top.
