Design[edit]

The design was given by revelation to the prophet at the time, Brigham Young. This is plainly NOT NPOV. I would add something like "according to" to the front of this statement, but I don't know who goes after the "according to." RhesusmanRhesusman 24 July 2005 16:34 (UTC)

Yes, this article needs to be re-written, actually. If I every get time I will. As-is, it seems like it might be a copyright violation from an LDS source, but this hypothetical source does not seem to be in Google. Needs NPOV in either case. Cool Hand Luke 01:14, 27 July 2005 (UTC)

Upside down photo of truss[edit]

No one has been willing to come forth to turn around the photo of the truss, I had to do it to get it shown right side up. The truss curves inward from bottom. Samuelsenwd (talk) 07:26, 2 May 2009 (UTC)

Aluminum[edit]

I really doubt the roof was covered in aluminum in 1867 (at that time it was still almost a precious metal). AnonMoos (talk) 08:44, 5 June 2009 (UTC)

After a very long wait, I have clarified this in the article. ——Rich jj (talk) 16:33, 8 February 2011 (UTC)

What's the Tabernacle's religious role?[edit]

I would assume that religious services are held in the Tabernacle and yet there is no discussion of the services or the religious significance of the building, or its architecture. Some should be included. --Bruce Hall (talk) 12:20, 4 October 2012 (UTC)

Acoustics[edit]

Most of this section is dubious. It's not NPOV and there are no citations of any neutral acoustic expert (or notable non-LDS musicians) praising its acoustics. On the contrary, the domed/concave ceiling geometry and focusing effects described are usually regarded as acoustical flaws. The Tabernacle is even cited in Wikipedia as an example of a "Whispering Gallery"--not a quality you want in a large auditorium or concert hall. Also--the concept of removing interior columns because they "obstruct the flow of sound waves" is not a real acoustical concept. Sound waves bend quite readily around columns. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.101.50.184 (talk) 01:29, 17 June 2013 (UTC)
