"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. The gardens will highlight the programmatic sectors of the park including the museum, observation deck, playgrounds and natural forested areas.”
