The Eiffel Tower is one of the worlds most famous towers and probably the best known attraction in any city. Since its construction millions of people have climbed its stairs or used its elevators to reach the top. London is a famous and historical city. For many years London’s designers and engineers have dreamt about building a tower or structure that will become even more famous than its rival in Paris.

You may want to add:

Fair ground rides at the base of the tower,
Dare-devil rides - at the top,
A cinema (the highest in the world),
Places to eat,

Business Offices,
An observation platform - with a glass floor at the top,
Etc……….

The people of London are proud of their famous buildings. The new tower must be so good that it also becomes a symbol representing the UK.

The cityscape shown below is that of Shanghai, a Chinese city. It is dominated by modern high towers. These may help you design your tower.
