Gustave Alexandre Eiffel.
ed. by Paco Asensio
Gustave Eiffel (Dijori, 1832-Paris, 1923), famous engineer, empresario, and builder. He was known above all for the tower in Paris that bears his name and from his youth showed great inclination toward the study of the sciences as well as a thorough interest in succeeding in the society of his time. An untiring worker, Eiffel founded his own construction firm in 1865, at a time when France was industrializing. His contact with the engineer Charles Nepveu was crucial at the beginning of Eiffel's career, as would be later his own capacity for innovation and the ability to surround himself with brilliant engineers such as Kcechlin, His last years were dedicated to the study of aerodynamics, a science which captivated his imagination.
