Joshua Prince-Ramus (born August 11, 1969) is Principal of REX, an architecture and design firm based in New York City.

Prince-Ramus was founding partner of OMA New York—the American affiliate of the Office for Metropolitan Architecture/Rem Koolhaas—and served as its principal until he repositioned the firm as REX in 2006.[1] While REX was still known as OMA New York, Prince-Ramus was Partner in Charge of the Guggenheim-Hermitage Museum in Las Vegas and the Seattle Central Library.[2]

He has been credited on the "5 greatest architects under 50" by The Huffington Post,[3] one of the world's most influential young architects by Wallpaper*,[4] one of the twenty most influential players in design by Fast Company[5] and listed among "The 20 Essential Young Architects" by ICON magazine.[6]

Prince-Ramus was the Eero Saarinen Visiting Professor at the Yale School of Architecture,[7] and a visiting professor at the architecture schools of Columbia University, Harvard University, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Syracuse University. He is a member of the TED Brain Trust and shared REX's design methodologies at the TED2006 and TEDxSMU conferences.
