Text description provided by the architects. Two pavilions have been entirely rebuilt. Technical analyses established that it would be better to rebuild the pavilions entirely than simply to refurbish them. The 58 Tour Eiffel restaurant gains entirely new facades to maintain consistency with the refurbished first floor.

Inside the Ferrié Pavilion, the restaurant and shop spaces have been entirely redesigned and refitted for greater visitor comfort and convenience. Rest and relaxation spaces have been created, and the views over Paris have been maximised by the introduction of more extensive glazing and the connection of spaces.

A museography pathway through the history of the Eiffel Tower

The cultural pathway takes visitors around the first floor in the open air via a series of kiosks, showcases, information screens, touch screens, digital albums and bookstalls structured around two key themes: the work of Gustave Eiffel and the Tower as a symbol of a modernising world.
