los angeles-based practice michael maltzan architecture and berkeley-based landscape architecture practice tom leader studio 
have collaborated to produce 'the lens' a shortlisted proposal for the st. petersburg pier international design competition for the 
bayside city of st. petersburg, florida. the masterplan hope to generate a central and iconic element which connects the city 
with the waterfront creating a relationship with the bay. similar to a magnifying glass upon the water's surface, the sail-like 
structure rises from the water creating a framed view of the sky and horizon. two pedestrian paths cross each other at varied 
elevations provide alternative experiences for walking and bicycling.
