The "Lens" a possible icon? | News
St. Petersburg, FL - With the vote on the St. Petersburg Pier coming soon, some are saying that the "Lens" would be like no other pier in the world. The piers crown-like design could possibly give St. Petersburg a name for itself throughout the world. St. Louis with it's arch and Paris with the Eiffel Tower both were despised by many and now considered iconic architectural history.
According to the Tampa Tribune, some other groups aren't sold on the idea of the "Lens" becoming iconic. Many say the "Lens" doesn't reflect the history of the city's waterfront and worry that this new design will be a long-lasting mistake.
