PRESS RELEASE

THE EIFFEL TOWERS 1ST FLOOR IS GOING TO HAVE A FACE-LIFT

New buildings and entirely redeveloped public spaces to make the Towers 1st floor once again one of Paris most spectacular and attractive locations, 57 meters above the city Since the last transformation of the 1st floor 30 years ago, the Tower has welcomed more visitors than during its first century of existence! The pavilions and public spaces of the 1980s are obsolete and not adapted to the number of visitors, the visitors expectations and technical standards. The floor reorganisation project includes: rebuilding the reception and conference rooms to turn it into one of Paris most attractive event spaces; rebuilding the pavilion dedicated to visitor services, particularly restaurants and shops; creating an entertaining and educational museographic path; and finally, creating two spectacular attractions: discovering space on the monument and its esplanade thanks to glass flooring and balustrades and an immersion film promising strong emotions. Important goals linked to the sustainable development policy implemented at the Eiffel Tower: accessibility and reducing its carbon footprint. Today, disabled people are unable to access most of the 1st floor of the Tower. With this reorganisation all visitors, regardless of their disability, will be able to enjoy the whole space and all its services and contents. New building standards, solar energy for heating, wind energy, hydraulic energy, rainwater recovery, LED lighting: various techniques will be implemented to help improve the Towers energy performance. An influenced architecture, designed entirely in diagonals and transparency by the architects Moatti-Rivire, providing an improved experience of the Tower and Paris and respect for the monument and its history. The new pavilions are influenced by the pillars designed by Gustave Eiffel. They hug the Towers slant. The volumes are incorporated in the depths and curves of the pillars. Service areas are placed next to the gables to preserve the central transparency. The floor is designed as a real urban space with its streets, its buildings and its central space, 57 meters above ground. It gives a close view of the city and of the Tower itself. It is a knowledge space where the inside of the Tower object can be explored. The project offers an improved experience of the Tower and Paris, an entertaining sensory experience, a journey of the senses and knowledge. The redevelopment has been designed and carried out by the architects Moatti-Rivire architects, in consortium with Bateg for the construction. The latter won the design-construction contract in October 2010. A few figures 4,586 m2 redeveloped, out of the floors 5420 m2 25 million excluding tax: total cost of the reorganisation, fees included, entirely funded by SETE (Eiffel Tower Operating Company) 18 months of work in 2012 and 2013 during which the Tower will remain open to the public

The

ISSUES AND SCOPE OF THE PROJECT

WHY A COMPLETE REOGANISATION OF THE 1ST FLOOR OF THE EIFFEL TOWER?


The project is carried out under the Plan Contractuel dInvestissement (Contractual Investment Plan) concluded with the City of Paris, owner of the monument, in 2005.

It has 4 main goals:


Renovating and modernising the pavilions and public spaces on the 1st floor, which have become obsolete The last major renovation operation for these spaces was carried out almost 30 years ago. Since then, the Tower has welcomed more visitors than during its first century of existence.The pavilions in particular are no longer suited to the number of visitors, the service quality looked for and technical standards. Boosting the floors power of attraction One of the Towers great paradoxes: its 1st floor is both the most spacious and the least visited. The goal of this reorganisation is to turn it into a space for relaxing at the end of visits, dedicated to services, observing the monument and discovering its history. After this operation, the Tower will also have one of the most modern and attractive event spaces in Paris. Making the spaces accessible to all our visitors Today, disabled people are unable to access most of the 1st floor of the Tower, in particular the outer gallery and the upper level of the Ferri pavilion. This reorganisation will make these spaces accessible to all our visitors. Helping reduce the Eiffel Towers carbon footprint This has been one of the major goals of the Towers operation for 10 years. This project must of course take part in this by improving the energy performance of the pavilions and producing part of our energy needs on site. Choosing to rebuild the pavilions rather than renovate them Technical diagnoses have shown that within 5 to 10 years the existing buildings would experience problems as they aged, and therefore present operating problems. In addition, they no longer meet environmental standards. In addition, the significant technical constraints of the current pavilions (fully saturated false ceilings for example) make maintenance complicated and limit the necessary technical and functional changes. The schedule for the rebuilding project is shorter, which is a major issue for the floors operation (disruption of visits, loss of income for the Gustave Eiffel room, etc.). Finally, the additional cost (less than 15%) was not significant enough to outweigh all the advantages.

The

ISSUES AND SCOPE OF THE PROJECT

The PROJEcT
AN INFLUENCED ARCHITECTURE
AN IMPROVED EXPERIENCE OF THE TOWER AND THE CITY, A JOURNEY OF THE SENSES AND KNOWLEDGE: SPECTACULAR ATTRACTIONS THE TWO NEW PAVILIONS

The project proposes an improved experience of the Tower and Paris, which will also be a sensory and entertaining experience, a journey of the senses and knowledge. The pavilions house the functional entities. They are nestled between the pillars of the Eiffel Tower. Gustave Eiffel designed these powerful pillars on an inclined plane to project the tower 300m into the air. Each floor is a link between the pillars. We have imagined pavilions that are influenced by these pillars. They are subject to their forces in action. They are therefore inclined in two planes. This new geometry links them intimately to the Tower. Their tangible outlines are rooted in the geometries of the pillars. The heart of the first floor of the Eiffel Tower is an open space. It is a small urban centre suspended 57 metres above the citys ground-level. Surrounding this open space, the opaque floor has been partly replaced by a glass floor and the grille of the balustrade has been replaced by glass. The glass, protective, gives the experience of walking above the corbelled structure of the first floor thus revealed. It is a unique experience on the first floor and will become the centre of all sensations. Scenography is not an experience that can be isolated; it is in symbiosis with the architectural project. Alain Moatti - architect

The PROJEcT
AN INFLUENCED ARCHITECTURE: DIAGONALS AND TRANSPARENCY

The pavilions hug the incline of the Tower: the volumes are incorporated into the depths and curves of the pillars. In this way, they mirror the Towers rising movement and cannot be separated from it. Service areas are placed next to the gables so as to preserve the central transparency. The view of the Tower, close up or far away, is the same on all four of its sides.

The 3 shelters protecting visitors while they wait for the lifts (pagodas) also follow the incline of the pillars in which the lifts they serve are located: North, East and West.

Each one is developed on two staggered levels to fit under the existing stairs to the 2nd floor. Their glass faades with a simple curve offer a maximum of space and clarity.

The PROJEcT
AN IMPROVED EXPERIENCE OF THE TOWER AND THE CITY, A JOURNEY OF THE SENSES AND KNOWLEDGE: SPECTACULAR ATTRACTIONS

The first floor of the Eiffel Tower belongs to the city, but the second and third floors belong to the sky. It is a real urban space with its streets, its buildings and its central space, 57 meters above ground. It gives a close view of the city and the Tower itself. It is a knowledge space where the inside of the Tower object can be explored. Discovering open space above Paris
The opaque floor surrounding the central space has been partly replaced by a glass floor and the grille of the balustrade has been with glass. The glass, protective, gives the experience of walking above the corbelled structure of the first floor thus revealed. A significant experience, promising strong emotions!

A non-skid floor treatment is planned. The effect of transparency increases progressively from the interior towards the central space, covering 1.85 metres at its largest.

The PROJEcT
AN IMPROVED EXPERIENCE OF THE TOWER AND THE CITY, A JOURNEY OF THE SENSES AND KNOWLEDGE: SPECTACULAR ATTRACTIONS

Museography to know everything about the monument and its history


The cultural path will come in a variety of forms in the open air throughout the floor: kiosks, display cases, screens, touch screens, digital albums, etc. It will let visitors find out about the life and works of Gustave Eiffel, the history of the Towers construction, its changes and metamorphoses, its family album (visitors, the people that bring the monument to life, small and big stories, its replicas and the other towers of the world, etc.), its position as a time-honoured icon in the world of art. The museographic area will be extended to inside the Ferri pavilion where visitors can find a selection of objects from the Eiffel Towers collection, displayed throughout this area.

The immersion show


Finally, on the 1st floor of the Ferri pavilion, an immersion show, created using floor and wall projections, that will immerse the visitors in the three characteristic worlds of the Tower: experiencing the space: climbing the Tower, walking on its beams, etc. the parties and illuminations building the monument.

A bright night-time atmosphere that respects the image of the Tower by night
The lighting system favours lighting aimed at the ground, with fairly invisible sources and warm hues.The pathway on the outer gallery is lit from the bottom. Light for the urban centre comes from the pavilions themselves and from the balustrade around the central shaft.

Better designed service areas - restaurants, shops - for entertainment and relaxing
The restaurant and shop, at the heart of the Ferri pavilion, offer rest areas integrated to their commercial surfaces. The views of Paris and the Tower are optimised thanks to the transparency and links between the spaces. The creation of a staircase to the outside gallery (like in Eiffels time) encourages strolls.

SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT APPROACH

A PROJECT AIMING AT AN EXEMPLARY

MAKING THE AREAS ACCESSIBLE TO ALL VISITORS


Today, disabled people are unable to access most of the 1st floor of the Tower, in particular the outer gallery and the upper level of the Ferri pavilion. Which is why: accessibility regulations will be applied to all the reorganised areas, for all types of disability. For example: obstacles removed or signposted, suitable lighting, tactile floor paving, etc. a ramp has been created between the outer gallery and the terrace on the Champ de Mars side (currently inaccessible), lifts are planned inside the pavilions (currently not equipped), more restrooms for disabled people, the museography has been adapted.

ENERGY PERFORMANCE
No High Environment Quality references can be applied to the Eiffel Tower; however, our ambition is to develop an exemplary project in terms of sustainable development. It is even one of the main goals of the reorganisation project. The project links architectural design and technical innovation and is inspired by the requirements and goals of the Paris Climate Plan for renovations. It will improve the Towers energy performance by 30%. Sun protection For the pavilions, we are planning protection from sun pollution without changing the views of the many perspectives of Paris, while offering high levels of transparency for the pavilion faades. The position of the glass surfaces relative to the vertical and their orientation will allow them to reduce the internal heat input from faade heating by at least 25% in summer, thus allowing us to use less energy due to air conditioning. Solar energy for heating Solar hot water production, covering on average 50% of domestic hot water need for both pavilions, will be carried out by means of 4 solar panels with a total surface area of 10m2 installed on the roof of the Ferri building.

13

SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT APPROACH


ENERGY PERFORMANCE
Wind power 4 vertical wind turbines will be installed at the technical platform under the Ferri pavilion. They will create no sound or visual pollution. Electricity production is estimated at 8,000 kWh/year.

A PROJECT AIMING AT AN EXEMPLARY

Hydraulic power Almost 40%, approximately12,000 m3, of the Eiffel Towers consumption of drinking water comes from the 1st floor. Integrating turbines to the supply network will generate an additional source of electricity production. Feed water and waste water will pass through turbines: a mini power station that will produce 4,000 kW/an.

Rain water recovery Storage will be installed under the Ferri pavilion for rain water, as an alternative to tap water. It will be used to supply the pavilions restrooms. This system also allows us to use less energy on powering the boosters that send the water to the floors of the Tower. Energy choices 95% of the lighting will be LED-type, which has two advantages: optimal lifespan and low consumption. High-performance heat pumps will be installed to meet the pavilions heating and cooling needs.

EASY TO MAINTAIN AND FLEXIBLE IN OPERATION


All environmental production will be continuously linked to the Eiffel Towers technical management system, which allows equipment performance to be monitored. The Tower will benefit from the great operational flexibility provided by the reversibility of some of the workstations (pagodas), the design of the new Gustave Eiffel room, the reconfiguration of the Ferri pavilions services and the modularity of the immersion show room.

SORTING WASTE
SETE has implemented a waste sorting system since 2009. The reorganisation of the 1st floor will allow us to enlarge the premises devoted to this and increase the quality of the sorting operation.

AN EVOLVING FLOOR SINCE 1889


This new reorganisation project is a continuation of the monuments history. The public areas and buildings have been transformed to meet operational needs, visitor expectations and changes in tourism. 1937 and the early 1980s are the two significant stages in the Towers radical transformations. Changes to the pavilions
In 1889, the first floors excessive decoration tended to blend into the Towers overall decorum. In 1937, Andr Granet sought to reduce the impact of the gallery and pavilions on the general view of the Tower so as to free the panoramic view. Franois Dhtels intervention in 1981, playing on mirror faades and tone-on-tone paint, sought to blend in with the backdrop of the construction.

Changes to the sheltered waiting areas


Faced with an increasing number of visitors, the lift boarding points have been altered many times. Originally, they were out in the open with no protection from the weather. The number and the direction of ascent vary depending on the pillars and eras. Shapes follow one another: straight, balanced or horseshoe-shaped staircases... In 1982, Franois Dhtel created glass and metal pagodas to protect the visitors and provide better working conditions for the staff.

Changes to the outside gallery


The outside gallery has kept its street in the air function over the years, giving a panoramic view over the Parisian rooftops. The upper passageway between the faade of the pavilions and the outer gallery disappeared when the pavilions were built in 1981.

THE EIFFEL TOWER IN A FEW WORDS AND NUMBERS


Built by Gustave Eiffel for the 1889 Universal Exhibition celebrating the first centenary of the French Revolution, the Eiffel Tower was built in 2 years, 2 months and 5 days; a real technical and architectural feat for that era. It was a huge success right from the start. Originally built for 20 years only, it was saved by the scientific experiments that Eiffel promoted, especially the first radio transmissions and then the telecommunication transmissions. Over the years, it has seen feats, extraordinary illuminations and prestigious visitors. The Eiffel Tower has been the stage for many events that have had an international impact (lighting systems, the Towers hundredth anniversary, firework displays for the year 2000 and the Towers 120th anniversary, painting projects, flashing light display, the Tower in colour, ice rink on the 1st floor, etc.). A must-visit site in Paris, it now receives almost 7 million visitors per year, 75 % of whom are foreigners.

THE MOATTI-RIVIRE ARCHITECTURAL AGENCY


AND THE COMPANIES OF THE WINNING CONSORTIUM

Moatti - rivire
The Moatti-Rivire agency is the result of a meeting between Alain Moatti, architect and scenographer since 1985, and Henri Rivire (1965 2010), architect, designer, and graduate of the Ecole Camondo in 1990. With their complementary educational backgrounds and similar artistic sensibility, Alain Moatti and Henri Rivire share a taste for the manifest. In 2001, after parallel careers, they decided to become partners: the imaginary, emotions, sublimation of the programme, the locations history are the origin of the project they gave a face anchored in reality. In 2001, Jean-Paul Gaultier selected them to transform a Parisian mansion into a haute couture house. From then on, the agency has been invited to take part in many prestigious public and private competitions (Louvre Museum, Colmar Beaux-Arts museum, Marseilles French Regional Contemporary Art Fund, Maison de la radio, Grand Theatre Hotel in Beirut, Baccarat Hotel in Dubai, etc.). Between 2007 and 2009, the agency carried out many cultural projects: expanding and renovating the International City of Lace and Fashion in Calais (2009) and the Champollion Museum - Scripts of the World in Figeac (2007); creating the Charles-de-Gaulle History Museum in the Htel National des Invalides in Paris (2008); rehabilitating and converting the Grande Halle of the old Arles SNCF workshops (2007). The world of luxury and fashion has also used the architects expertise. They developed the new design concept for Yves Saint-Laurent shops throughout the world (2008) and Akris in the United States (2009), created a high-end shopping mall, 65 Croisette, in Cannes (2008) and designed the scenography of an exhibit for Baccarat (2008). Nowadays, the agency works in France and abroad, with an increasing number of more and more varied projects, which has opened the doors to the hotel, catering and design business fields. The agency has just created a restaurant and tea room in Beirut for the starred chef Yannik Allno (2011), it is in charge of renovating the Bourse Centre in Marseille (2013), creating the five-star hotel, Le Club, in Courchevel (2013), the Spa and gastronomic restaurant of the Summerland hotel in Lebanon (2013) and a residential hotel in Bagnolet (2013). In terms of design, the agency has created the Crystal fibre chandeliers for Baccarat, made of crystal and carbon fibre (2011 catalogue). It has won the competition for creating a positive-energy office building for Icade in Saint-Denis and for creating the Culture Ministry in Bahrain. These two projects perfectly portray the agencys interest in environmental issues and its practical approach to this fundamental challenge for our era. With regard to cultural facilities, we can now mention these new projects: the reorganisation of the first floor of the Eiffel Tower (delivery in 2013), the Museum of Decorative Arts and Fashion in Marseilles (2013), the Gendarmerie Museum in Melun (2014) and the creation of the International Graphic Design Centre in Chaumont (2014). Constantly looking for materials that are innovative, original, diverted materials with almost magical effects, the agency defends forgotten expertise and future technologies. The architects creative journey has been rewarded with many prizes and awards: nomination for the Mies van der Rohe Award and Equerre dArgent Award for the Champollion Museum, nomination for the Mapic Awards and World Architecture Festival Award for 65 Croisette and the Designers Days Trophy Award for the Baccarat exhibit.
