St Petersburg, Florida is looking to replace the mall, shaped like an inverted pyramid, at the end of its quarter mile long pier. Hoping to swap the retail space for a landmark that will draw its citizens to the waterfront, the City launched a design competition last June. Now, the entries have been narrowed down to three finalists, including the Wave, a looping entry from BIG Architects.
