Would they dare ???

Several news outlets reported last month that the Eiffel Tower in Paris would be getting a temporary addition next year to mark its 120th birthday: a mushroom-shaped viewing platform made of Kevlar panels.

It turned out, though, that the tower was planning no such addition, temporary or otherwise. It was a misunderstanding fueled by Internet hype: a story about temporary architecture that was itself temporary.
