Architect OMA has revealed its plans to transform a former transport hub in Jersey City into The Centre Pompidou Jersey City.
Located in Journal Square, the adaptive reuse project will see the 5,400-square-metre Pathside Building turned into the French cultural institute's first North American outpost.
