Joshua Ramus (born August 11, 1969) is founding principal of REX, an internationally acclaimed architecture and design firm based in New York City, whose name signifies a re-appraisal (RE) of architecture (X).[1]

Current projects include The Ronald O. Perelman Performing Arts Center at the World Trade Center in New York;[2] the Mercedes-Benz Future Lab and Museum in Stuttgart; the new performing arts center for Brown University in Providence; 2050 M Street,[3] a premium office building in Washington, DC that will host CBS's Washington Bureau; PERTH+,[4] a 60-story mixed-use tower in Western Australia; and the Necklace Residence[5] on Long Island. In the fall of 2017, REX completed the transformation of Five Manhattan West,[6] the re-cladding and interior renovation of a 160,000 m2 exemplar of late-Brutalism straddling Penn Station's rail yard in New York.

REX's work has been recognized with the profession's top accolades, including two AIA National Honor Awards, a U.S. Institute for Theatre Technology National Honor Award, an American Library Association National Building Award, two American Council of Engineering Companies' National Gold Awards, Time magazine's Building of the Year, and numerous AIA New York, ArchDaily, Architect/Progressive Architecture, Architect's Newspaper, Architectural Review/MIPIM, Architizer, and Wallpaper* design awards.
