St. Pete Pier Wins Design Award
This is the third award the St. Pete Pier has earned from the American Institute of Architects. This award recognizes the design team for the Pier Approach.
ST. PETERSBURG – The St. Pete Pier is under construction, however it has already been recognized three times by the American Institute of Architects.
Most recently, the design team for the Pier Approach, Wannemacher Jensen Architects, has been named a 2018 AIA Florida Merit Award recipient for the St. Pete Pier Market. The design was in competition with 41 projects from 32 firms in Florida and Puerto Rico. The jury of four based in London selected the winning projects in May.
“I believe this award reflects the cities strong dedication to quality parks and sustainability,” architect Jason Jensen of Wannemacher Jensen said. “In the submission, we highlighted how the
city is turning an underutilized roadway into a vibrant linear park. We also noted the project’s sustainability integrating solar power as a unique shade structure. We are delighted to receive this award on behalf of the city and the new St. Pete Pier.”
In 2016, a Tampa Bay AIA Honor Award was presented to ASD | SKY and Rogers Partners for the New St. Pete Pier Design. Also, in 2016, Rogers Partners Architects + Urban Designers was selected a winner of an AIANY Award for the design of the new St. Pete Pier.
AIA Honor Awards recognize projects that demonstrate the highest standards of design and innovation and a commitment to excellence in architectural design.
