ON THE COVER: St. Pete’s Pier, in St. Petersburg, Florida, by Ken Smith Workshop, W Architecture and Landscape Architecture, and Rogers Partners Architects + Urban Designers.

Featured Story: “Right of Center,” by Roberto J. Rivera, ASLA. It’s been a fishing jetty, a railroad pier, a contested site of segregation, even an inverted structure that called to mind a cake left out in the rain. But after six tries and 130 years, St. Petersburg, Florida’s dazzling new pier and park, by a team including W Architecture and Landscape Architecture, Ken Smith Workshop, and Rogers Partners Architects + Urban Designers, might be a keeper.
