St. Petersburg has sponsored an international design competition for the redesign and replacement of its landmark Pier.
The City of St. Petersburg Florida was sponsoring an international design competition for the redesign and replacement of its landmark Pier. This competition was to replace the most visible landmark in the history of the City,to redefine what it should be, and to give it a new identity within the framework of an evolving downtown edge.
The proposal created by danish firm BIG architects is one of three shortlisted submissions for the St. Petersburg Pier international design competition. The masterplan will organize and harmonize a variety of individual events along a network of paths, merging to form the iconic pier structure which will gradually flow into the waters of tampa bay. The branching pattern will collectively form the ‘tributary park’ containing native plantings of diverse color schemes. View all their presentation here
