Madame Eiffel Gets A New Hat

A temporary one, that is. Or so they say.
Paris-based Sereroa Architects devised this Kevlar structure to accommodate the increasing crowds at the top of the Eiffel tower. It will be "temporarily boiled without requiring any modification to the existing structure," they say. Yet, given the Eiffel Tower's star power and breathtaking views, it is fair to bet that Eiffel's new chapeau will be more than temporary. Via WAN.
