Aurelio Posada | Design Principal | Oil Artist
Aurelio Posada is a Principal at HuntonBrady Architects and Lead Designer with over 33 years of architectural experience. As Senior Designer for new hospitals, medical facilities, schools, churches, custom residential projects and more, he is responsible of both the exterior and interior architecture, and works closely in collaboration with design, production, and construction administration teams to assure design excellence and continuity. His projects include Advent Health Orlando’s iconic Ginsburg Tower and Walt Disney Pavilion at Advent Health for Children, Castle Rock Adventist Hospital, the Pavilion for Women and Children and the Hollis Cancer Center at Lakeland Regional Health.
He has served as panelist and presented in several national Healthcare Conferences, showcasing the Firm’s design work. Mr. Posada has architectural experience in North America, South America, and Europe and is internationally recognized for his participation in design competitions. He is a member of the American Institute of Architects Orlando and an accomplished artist who produces many of the firm’s architectural sketches. Aurelio enjoys spending time traveling with his wife and son; he is an avid oil artist, as well as architectural freehand sketcher when traveling.
Architecture and art go hand in hand in Aurelio’s life and work. They complement and inform each other, and have become a single intellectual line of thought. Over the last years, Aurelio has expanded his artwork, producing over 120 oil on canvas paintings, many of them reflecting his passion for architecture. These paintings have a strong influence of the Modern Masters’ work, his own trajectory as an Architect , and his cultural background and formation in Latin America and Spain.
His pieces have a distinct sharp definition of shapes, and a sense of place and scale, as well as a bold palette of colors.
The American Institute of Architects – Orlando chapter holds an annual art show open to architects, designers and members of the industry. There is always a jury of the works submitted, and last year, one of Aurelio’s pieces received Best of Show Award.
Aurelio is always sketching with pencil on paper, exploring new ideas. Once something comes up that has some potential, he uses his IPad to actually do the final exploration of geometries, composition and color. This tool is very flexible and versatile, allowing him to generate multiple ideas as the background for each painting.
