The Dallas Architecture Forum, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing public education about architecture, landscape architecture, design and the urban environment, is pleased to present the celebrated architect Jason Long, on Tuesday, October 20, 2020 in a virtual lecture via Zoom.
Jason Long is a Partner at OMA, an international practice with projects around the world. He is based in the New York office. Since joining the firm in 2003, Mr. Long has brought a research-driven, interdisciplinary approach to a wide range of OMA’s projects internationally. From concept to completion, he served as the project manager for a new national museum in Quebec City and the Faena Forum, a multi-purpose venue in Miami. Among OMA’s many award-winning projects are the Seattle Public Library, the Casa de Música in Portugal, the CCTV headquarters in Beijing, and the Taipei Performing Arts Center.
“OMA is one of the leading architectural design firms in the world whose depth and breadth of experience is remarkable in terms of project type and the number of countries in which they operate,” stated Forum Executive Director Nate Eudaly. “As one of the firm’s partners, Jason Long has extensive experience in leading the work of this international powerhouse. The Dallas community will have an opportunity to hear the details of past and current OMA projects in Texas and beyond in what we believe will be a fascinating evening.”
In Texas, Mr. Long is the OMA Design Partner for POST Houston, which will transform the former main USPS facility into a new mixed use commercial and cultural anchor. OMA’s presence in Dallas includes the Wyly Theater at AT&T Performing Arts Center, a winning proposal for The Connected City (a proposal to connect downtown Dallas to the Trinity River) and the design of the recent Dior exhibition at the Dallas Museum of Art.
The lecture will occur at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, October 20, 2020. The lecture will be presented virtually via Zoom. It is presented at no charge to all Forum members, and anyone may join The Forum to attend this and other outstanding programming – currently being presented virtually.

Currently, Mr. Long is leading three projects focusing on urbanism and the public realm in Washington D.C. that provide an innovative approach to recreation, public health and equitable development at varying scales: the 11th Street Bridge Park, a new elevated green space crossing the Anacostia River; 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 a multi-level restaurant within the new First and Broadway Park in downtown Los Angeles.
Long’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 the transformation of a post office warehouse in downtown Houston into a mixed-use hub, 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 Long holds a Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy from Vassar College and a Master of Architecture from Harvard University’s Graduate School of Design. He also currently teaches at the Cornell University School of Architecture, Art and Planning.
