Akrisht joins MIT with an aspiration of establishing himself as a forward-thinking and socially responsible real estate developer. At MIT, Akrisht seeks to augment his architecture and construction background with a deeper understanding of real estate development’s financial, social, and environmental aspects in emerging economies.

Prior to attending MIT, Akrisht was Project Design Manager for the flagship IKEA store in Mumbai and other development projects with Atkins, a respected multinational design and project management consultancy. He holds a Bachelor of Architecture degree from the School of Planning of Architecture, New Delhi. In his six years of working as an Architect, he was responsible for developing architecture design, inter-disciplinary coordination, developing BIM standards and translating client requirements to external consultants and contractors. Having worked in different regions like United Kingdom, Middle East, India and South-East Asia, he is agile and easy to adapt to situations. His unorthodox thinking backed by a drive for innovation and efficiency helps bring unique ideas to the table.

Akrisht is a perpetual student, always looking to pick up new skills or develop existing ones further. When he is not working, he is likely running to make space for food, binge-watching tv, exploring a new place on foot or reading something that he stumbled upon at an airport bookstore.
