Organizers, who stressed that fundraising is in progress and that the scope of the project could change, put the cost at roughly $500,000 per pavilion. Rosa estimated $250,000 to $300,000. But he predicted that the temporary nature of the structures, which won't be fully enclosed, would keep expenses down.'It's almost like a tent,' he said."
If it's 'almost like a tent,' then why not put up a TENT? It would cost a lot less than $500,000 and it would indeed be temporary. What an outrageous waste of money!
