Stephen Sauvestre


French architect, sometimes referred to as the forgotten architect. Sauvestre worked together with Gustave Eiffel on the design of the Pavillion de Gaz for the World exposition in Paris 1878. A decade later they worked together for a much more famous creation: the Eiffel Tower. Whilst Eiffel (with Maurice Koechlin and Emile Nouguier) was behind the initial project and planned and built the tower, it was Sauvestre who gave the tower much of his look.
