The Effiel Tower Was A Bad Idea


The Eiffel tower was a bad idea. In fact, it was so bad that the elite poets, architects and artists of Paris wrote to the city about it:

“Imagine for a moment a giddy, ridiculous tower dominating Paris like a gigantic black smokestack, crushing under its barbaric bulk …”

That's an actual quote sourced from the local artists of Paris, against Gustave Eiffel and his innovative architecture. 

What would've happened if Mr. Eiffel didn't follow through with his work?

What if he needed reassurance from the painter, the poet and the architect? They all have valid expertise on design, aesthetic and culture. No?

What is going to happen if you don't follow through with your work? Are you waiting for validation? Will you swayed by those with "expertise"? 

Or will you build? Will you build anyway?
