A few days ago the city of Paris unanimously voted for the erection of a protective glass wall around the Eiffel tower.
The prestige project is subject to a competition which was won by Dietmar Feichtinger Architectes (lead consultant) and schlaich bergermann partner in February 2017.
Since then our Paris office is working constantly on the structural design of a 3 m safety wall which mainly consists out of glass and metal. Additionally the project includes a new concept for the entries and route guidance as well as a new lighting concept.
Construction will start this summer.
