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.
The Eiffel Pavilion contains a meeting and conference room entirely redesigned and rebuilt to provide one of the most attractive events spaces in Paris.
A number of pavilion configurations are possible: 200 guests seated or 300 standing, making the space perfect for conferences, receptions and cocktail parties in a unique setting.
The Ferrié Pavilion features a shop and restaurant on its lower level, and relaxation and viewing areas on its upper level.
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.
On the upper level of the Ferrié Pavilion, an immersive multimedia show using 7 projectors and 3 screens takes visitors deep into the three worlds of the Eiffel Tower: extraordinary contemporary architecture at the heart of the City of Light.
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.
It presents the Eiffel Tower to visitors as an art icon. Information on the life and work of Gustave Eiffel is presented in French and English, accompanied by his family album, the history of the Tower's construction and subsequent evolution, and photographs of those who work every day to keep the legend alive.
The Ferrié Pavilion features reproductions of items from the Eiffel Tower collection presented in updated surroundings.
