  • La Casa de Fierro, located in the city of Iquitos in the jungle of Peru, in front of the major square between Próspero and Putumayo streets, is a large iron residence built during the rubber boom at the end of the nineteenth century. La Casa de Fierro is one of the finest as well as best-preserved samples of civil architecture in Peru. The walls, ceiling, and balcony are plastered in rectangular sheets of iron. It is said to be the first prefabricated house in the Americas. Although popularly said to have been designed by the French architect Gustave Eiffel, there is no evidence that this is true; the building does not reflect his architectural style. The unsubstantiated claims say it was built in the Belgian workshops of Les Forges D´Aiseau. Rubber baron Anselmo del Aguila bought it at the International Exposition of Paris in 1889. Once dismantled, it was brought in pieces to Iquitos, and assembled there in 1890. Since 1985, it is being administered by the Club Social de Iquitos; which has contributed in its restoration. Its second floor now has a restaurant.

  • Konak Pier

    The Konak Pier was designed by Gustave Eiffel and inaugurated in 1890 at the port of İzmir, Turkey, near Konak Square, within the boundaries of the central metropolitan district of Konak. It was originally built as a warehouse together with the French customs office on the nearby Pasaport Quay during the renewal of İzmir's portuary infrastructures, the construction works of which began in 1867. The Konak Pier is reported to have been designed by Gustave Eiffel's architecture office. It was thoroughly restored starting from 2003 and was opened as an upmarket shopping center in 2004, featuring seaside restaurants and cafés. Since then, it became one of the landmarks of İzmir. There are plans to extend the Konak Pier compound to include a large marina, once suitable adjacent space is made available.

  • Maria Pia Bridge

    The Maria Pia bridge, commonly known as Ponte Dona Maria, is a railway bridge built in 1877 by Gustave Eiffel in Porto, Portugal. Built of wrought iron, its two-hinged crescent arch used to carry the railway to Lisbon for 353 metres across the River Douro at a height of 60 m above the river. When constructed it was the longest single-arch span in the world. It is no longer in use as a rail bridge, a modern replacement having been constructed in 1991. In 1875 the Royal Portuguese Railway Company announced a competition for a bridge to carry the Lisbon to Porto railway across the river Douro. This was very technically demanding. The river was fast-flowing, its depth could be as much as 20 m when in flood and the river bed was made up of a deep layer of gravel. These factors ruled out the construction of piers in the river, so that the bridge would have to have a central span of 160 m. At the time the longest bridge span was the 156 m of the bridge built by James B. Eads over the Mississippi at St Louis. Eiffel & Cie's design, priced at 965,000 French francs, was the least expensive of the four designs considered, around two thirds of the cost of the nearest competitor.
