Paris authorities are mulling a plan to extend the Eiffel Tower downwards as above ground building would spoil the French capital’s geometry, the head of the landmark’s operating company said.

“Paris Council [will] deliberate on June 19 or 20 this project for an underground building, we need further studies and we are moving forward with the project,’’ deputy mayor in charge of tourism Jean-Bernard Bros told AFP. Bros said that the project had been looked at for several months and that a committee had been set up to group together all the extension studies already done.

It is not possible to build at the ground level as ’’you have to respect the line of sight between the Ecole Militaire and the Trocadero,’’ Bros said.

The two-story underground extension would house the ticket booths currently found inside the edifice’s feet, an Eiffel Tower museum, a children’s area and other visitor amenities.

巴黎當局正考慮向下延伸艾菲爾鐵塔的計畫,因為向上延伸會破壞法國首都的幾何結構,這座地標的營運公司說。

主管旅遊業的巴黎副市長尚─貝納德‧布羅告訴法新社表示:「巴黎市議會在六月十九日或二十日審查這項地下建築計畫,我們需要更進一步研究,我們正在推動這項計畫。」布羅說,這項計畫已研擬數月,一個委員會已經成立,以整合現有與擴建相關的研究。

布羅指出,之所以不可能在地面層進行擴建,是因為「你得尊重從巴黎軍事學院到投卡德侯廣場之間的視線」。

地底加蓋的兩層擴建建築,將可容納目前設在艾菲爾鐵塔一樓的售票口、一間艾菲爾鐵塔博物館、一個兒童區以及其他遊客設施。
