Josh Mings

Architect, Antunovich Associates in Chicago United States

Josh Mings, AIA is a licensed architect, artist, and educator living in Chicago, embracing both the art and science of architecture and painting. Josh strives for four core values in his work – be it in built form or on canvas:

- Utilizing both pragmatism and poetry to convey meaning and allowing a building or painting to speak
- Connecting to history, context, and site through a dialogue incorporating both similarity and contrast
- Striving for inclusivity by being didactic, allowing a read of the layers making a building or painting
- Optimism through a pushing forward into an uncertain future, creating work of lasting value for future generations

In the realm of architecture, Josh has worked on a variety of projects in multi-family and senior affordable housing, encompassing new construction and historic preservation/renovation projects, at a variety of scales. While painting, Josh focuses on landscape and building subjects striving to bring out each subject/location’s essence and meaning while also focusing on light, texture, and materiality.
