Architectural design is no longer an isolated domain of professionally trained architects. Nowadays, while creating an architectural design of large projects, it is crucial to consult an extensive design team that includes structural and MEP consultants, social anthropologist and environmental scientists who help create a sustainable and meaningful environmental design in close coordination with the architects.
Policy-makers are also consolidating with these teams in a view to create a more holistic perspective of an environmental build and create a comprehensive change. The architectural industry is currently witnessing a market maturity that would bring more mature design works and an advanced understanding of building performances. The recent technological advances have made it possible to re-imagine the field of architectural design and construction industry as a whole.

A Leader who Inspired Change
Akkhilesh Seth, the Founder and CEO of IBA, comes from a very humble background and has a passion of living close to the nature. Architecture was his preferred career of choice because his mother, who was an architect herself, showed him the colossal impact an architect can trigger.

He therefore, strives to complete and carefully execute the projects within the well-defined time-period after overcoming all the constraints of Cost, Scope and Time. He started IBA four years back with an idea to be different; this idea was just a genesis of his search towards creating a difference for his clients. Akkhilesh has experimented a lot with work and ideas, but one thing remains constant; the strive to achieve excellence.

What sets IBA apart from others is that they are always willing to break the rules and design almost anything with a touch of uniqueness. “People are the reason for what we do, hence our design have always been people centric and will always be,” assures Akkhilesh.
In today’s scenario, when the portfolio of services has enlarged so much, IBA is striving to become an indispensable part of this long value chain. Akkhilesh feels that this is the biggest challenge as well as opportunity, as it requires continuous learning and adaptation all the time.
“Future depends on you and so does the opportunities that it brings along,” says Akkhilesh. Currently, as architecture is no longer an isolated profession, IBA aims at working on creating synergies so that their end product can be admired not just by the client but also by the society.
