Here are some of the comments currently on a blog hosted by the New York Times article on the Tentnology® fabric structure:

"...I’m going to miss that tent. It wasn’t only a beautiful and functional artifact, but also a symbol of possibility and hope."

"...Sometimes a simple, elegant design speaks volumes. This one certainly does. As nice as the sculpted shape is, viewed head-on, its scale is even more impressive in a side view."

"...I had no idea it was temporary. I remember thinking how beautiful it looked outstretched to the gray sky like a beacon of hope. I hope whatever replaces it is as beautiful as this structure was."
