Frederic Auguste Bartholdi

The construction of the Statue of Liberty was originally envisioned while Frederic Auguste Bartholdi, the architect, was visiting the country of Egypt. That is the place where he saw the construction of Suez Canal and was also the same place where he got his inspiration and motivation to build a colossal statue one day.

For this project, he sought the assistance of Gustave Eiffel, a French engineer who also designed the world-renowned Eiffel Tower, for the proper designing of the Liberty's structure and form.
