Sometimes modern additions, temporary and permanent, can bring out aspects of an older building that haven't been seen before. Such as the scaffolding on the Washington Monument.



But, this 'thing' atop the Eiffel Tower is not right. The scaffolding on the Washington Monument accentuates the shape of the original structure, the 'thing' atop the Eiffel Tower ruins the visual upward thrust the the tower creates.
