LA firm Michael Maltzan Architecture has won a competition to redesign St. Petersburg Pier in Florida.
The practice’s crown-shaped design, The Lens, will now face the vote of the St. Petersburg City Council on February 2nd.
If the concept is accepted, the final design will be created in conjunction with the public over the course of the year.
The Lens was deemed to be the most practical and cost-effective design in the shortlist, by a jury of three architects and two elected officials.
It also gained the support of the public, with 68% in favour of the design.
