However there are many controversial debates on the reasons for the establishing and purpose of the monument.
From justified studies one is not wrong to argue that this monument was designed on the basis of social, political, economic lives of the Russian people at that time, when the country was undergoing and struggling for change in the society in each section of life. And this was around nineteen nineties (1900s) when the artist Tatlin decided to gather his knowledge and borrow from other great philosophers to finally design such a structure glazed volumes such as cube, cylinder, pyramid and hemisphere . According to Punin’s description as from Lodder’s notes, the tower is considered to be a “…functional building, created to actively participate in the making of revolution, to function as a machine promoting world revolution by acting as the administrative and propaganda center…” in align with this thinking Tatlin got the ague to inspire people with revolutionary thoughts and heroic quality of the time. In short he opted to create a reminder to the people of Russia of their remarkable time through that tower. After being furnish by glass and iron and being called “the material of modern classicism ” Lissitzky declares the materials to have a meaning as per social society. Iron to the mean the strong will of the proletariat who are the working class and glass to show the clear conscience.
In spite of Tatlin havng a lot support from his arguments concerning the tower there were some critics. For example Lodder states that the towers relationship to Bolshevik ideology is far from straight forward, simply because of the tower has no clear exact nature of dynamism. Lodder argues that the incorporation of the rotating structures answers no discernible technological, functional, and structural requirements. Furthermore as per Lodder’s notes, Trotsky stands out to critise Tatlin’s design
