Architecture Graduate Student
Salim Akli was born and raised in Azazga, Algeria. His interest in architecture led him to complete a Master of Architecture and Urbanism from the Mouloud Mammeri University of Tizi-Ouzou before continuing his education abroad in Belgium, receiving a Bachelor of Architecture from the University of Mons. Upon completion of his Bachelor’s degree, Salim moved to the United States, where he is currently finishing his final year in the Master of Architecture post-baccalaureate program at Kansas State University. With a truly global view of architecture, Salim has come to see the decisive role that the built environment has on our thoughts and emotions. This realization inspires him to use architecture as a positive role in our community, seeking an architecture that helps foster the best versions of ourselves. This interest in personally impactful architecture that is both sustainable and affordable led him to join the Net Positive studio.
Salim is currently living in Manhattan, Kansas, and enjoys exploring the city, running, biking, hiking, and working out. He also appreciates the culinary activities with his wife during the weekends.
