OMA's Comprehensive Strategy for Hoboken Selected for HUD Rebuild by Design Task Force

On October 28, OMA Partner Shohei Shigematsu presented four design opportunities across the Hurricane Sandy-affected region as part of the Rebuild by Design Initiative. After three months of research and conversation with communities in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, and beyond, the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has selected OMA's comprehensive strategy for Hoboken to be pursued in competition's next and final stage.

Resist, Delay, Store, Discharge: A Comprehensive Strategy for Hoboken

Hoboken is susceptible to both flash flood and storm surge. Our project capitalizes on a combination of political, ecological, and economic factors to create a comprehensive flood strategy - resist, delay, store, discharge - that both defends the entire city, and enables commercial, civic, and recreational amenities to take shape. Our comprehensive strategy deploys both hard infrastructure and soft landscape for coastal defense (resist); recommends policies to enable the urban fabric to slow down water (delay); a green circuit to trap water (store) and water pumps to support drainage (discharge).
