Eine Trilogie von der Suche nach der Form statisch idealer Kuppeln

 

Though named after a project of Gustave Eiffel, the Eiffel Tower – symbol of Paris – has ist structural concept and form from the responsible chief engineer Maurice Koechlin.

Koechlin was an engineer of outstanding ingenuity and well-versed in the structural techniques of his time. He possessed therefor the best qualifications for evolving such technically innovative conceptions for which Eiffel and his firm were renowned.

Maurice Koechlin was born on the 8th of March 1856 in Bühl (Alsace), offspring of a calm, in the Alsace area and Switzerland living family of industrials and townsmen: the great grandfather Jean Jacques (1789 – 1875) established a foundry in Mühlhausen, which developed into a machine factory that produced steam locomotives since 1839. The father Jean Frederique (1826 – 1914) owned a spinning plant. This way Maurice learned to be familiar with the range of task of the new and upcoming industrial society, from which he chose the work as an engineer for himself.

After a visit at the Lyzeums in Mühlhausen Maurice enwrote at the technical University of Zürich and studied civil engineering. He was a student of Karl Culmann (1821 – 81), who would have great impact on his engineering career.
