Full bio

Adel Zakout studied Architecture at the Architectural Association School of Architecture in London but, after a brief stint with a girl pushed him to the brink of bankruptcy, he was forced to join the more-profitable league of Entrepreneurs.

Adel founded Creative Agency Despark.com where he was able to pursure his love for the Internet and later combine it with Architecture via OpenBuildings.com, the crowdsourced building database. He is CEO of OpenBuildings.com and looks forward to the day when he will be able to make real use of his 5 year Architectural education.
