Trivia Question: The designer of the statute’s spine also designed which famous monument?
Thanks to his namesake tower in Paris, Alexandre-Gustave Eiffel was one of France’s leading structural engineers in the late 19th century. After Frédéric Bartholdi, the original designer of the Statue of Liberty, unexpectedly died, he was a natural choice to finish the monument. Eiffel came up with the idea of a central spine in the statue, which functions as a connector for the various asymmetrical metal girders that give the statue its shape.
The Answer: The correct answer is Eiffel Tower.
