St. Petersburg Florida Has Bold Vision for New Pier

The St. Petersburg Pier.  Click for photo credit.
Take a look at these finalists for the new St. Petersburg Pier.  For those of you who know the area, do you think that they fit the area?  The original pier was a Mediterranean style building and the new pier is pictured here.  These new designs take the space into an entirely new direction.

I think it is worth mentioning that St. Petersburg has put a flag up as being home to surrealism in the United States with the new Dali Museum.  From a surrealistic perspective, the third design fits, particularly since it resembles a sea urchin form often seen in the work of Dali.  See the sea urchin at the bottom of this Dali masterwork.
