Monument to the Third International, Vladimir Tatlin, 1921

Planned to be a monumental building, but was never built
Was to be made of iron, glass, and steel
Would have dwarfed the Eiffel Tower in Paris
Double helix design
Was to stand atop a concrete lecture space
Visitors could move upwards through the monument via the use of mechanical devices
