Jason Long, a Partner in the New York office of OMA, brings a research-driven, interdisciplinary approach to a wide range of OMA’s projects. From concept to completion, he served as the project manager for the Lassonde Pavilion, a new national museum in Quebec City and the Faena Forum, a multi-purpose venue in Miami. Currently, Jason is leading three projects focusing on urbanism and the public realm in Washington D.C. : the 11th Street Bridge Park; a sport and recreation masterplan for the RFK Stadium Armory Campus; and a streetscape design for Washington D.C.’s convention center. In addition, he is designing key components of the new First and Broadway Park in downtown Los Angeles and the City of Jersey City new cultural renovation of the historic Pathside Building in Journal Square. Other OMA projects in which Jason has been involved include the Shenzhen Stock Exchange, the New Court Rothschild Bank, and Milstein Hall at Cornell. Jason’s portfolio extends to residential development in California and New York, including The Avery in San Francisco and most recently two new towers for Greenpoint Landing, OMA’s first project in Brooklyn. He has recently focused on a number of adaptive reuse projects including transforming a historic parking garage in New York City into a new synagogue, and a laboratory building at the University of Toronto into a center for the university administration. Jason holds a Bachelor of Arts from Vassar and a Master of Architecture from the Harvard Graduate School of Design. In addition to his leadership as a Partner at OMA, Jason teaches at Cornell’s Architecture School.

OMA is one of the leading design firms in the world, whose many award-winning projects include the Seattle Public Library, the Casa de Música in Portugal, the CCTV headquarters in Beijing, and the Taipei Performing Arts Center. The firm’s Concrete at Alserkal project in Dubai was a finalist in the Aga Khan Award for Architecture’s 2019 competition. OMA’s presence in Dallas includes the Wyly Theater, a winning proposal for The Connected City (a proposal to connect the Trinity River to downtown Dallas), and the design of the recent Dior exhibition at the Dallas Museum of Art. In Texas, Jason is OMA’s Design Partner for POST Houston, which will transform the former main USPS facility into a mixed use commercial and cultural center for the Gulf Coast Region.
