The Eiffel Tower ( EYE-f?l; French: tour Eiffel [tu???f?l] (listen)) is a wrought-iron lattice tower on the Champ de Mars in Paris, France. It's named after the engineer Gustave Eiffel, whose firm designed and built the tower.
Constructed from 1887 to 1889 as the entrance to the 1889 World's Fair, it was initially criticised by a number of France's leading artists and intellectuals for its design, but it has become a worldwide cultural icon of France and one of the most recognisable structures on the planet. The Eiffel Tower is the most-visited paid monument in the world; 6.91 million people ascended it in 2015.
The tower is 324 metres (1,063 ft) tall, about the same height as an 81-storey construction, and also the tallest structure in Paris. Its base is square, measuring 125 metres (410 ft) on each side. During its construction, the Eiffel Tower surpassed the Washington Monument to become the tallest man-made structure in the world, a title it held for 41 years until the Chrysler Building in New York City was completed in 1930.
The Aon Center (200 East Randolph Street, formerly Amoco Building) is a modern supertall skyscraper just east of the Chicago Loop, Chicago, Illinois, United States, designed by architect Companies Edward Durell Stone and The Perkins and Will partnership, and completed in 1974 as the Standard Oil Building.With 83 floors and a height of 1,136 ft (346 m), it's the fourth-tallest construction in Chicago, surpassed in height by Willis Tower, Trump International Hotel and Tower, and Vista Tower. The building is managed by Jones Lang LaSalle, which is also headquartered in the building. Aon Center formerly housed the world headquarters of Aon and Amoco. Aon still maintains headquarters of its US operations there. The building is also the co-headquarters of Kraft Heinz. Source: Wikipedia
