Join the 47N Student Group for a lecture by Joshua Prince-Ramus, Principal of Rex. Rex is an internationally acclaimed New-York City based architecture firm. He was listed as one of the five greatest architects under 50 by The Huffington Post, and is a member of the TED Brain Trust.
Joshua Prince-Ramus was a founding partner of OMA New York—the American branch of the Office for Metropolitan Architecture (OMA)—and served as its director until he renamed the firm REX in 2006. While his office was known as OMA New York, Mr. Prince-Ramus was Partner in Charge of the Guggenheim-Hermitage Museum in Las Vegas and the Seattle Central Library, hailed as Time Magazine’s 2004 Building of the Year and by New York Times architecture critic Herbert Muschamp as “the most exciting new building it has been my honor to review in more than 30 years of writing about architecture.”
Mr. Prince-Ramus received a Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy with distinction from Yale University in 1991 and a Master of Architecture from Harvard University in 1996, where he was both an SOM fellow and the first Araldo Cossutta Fellow. In 2007, he was the Eero Saarinen Visiting Professor at the Yale School of Architecture.
