Hussam Dekkak

Hussam is an architect and teacher. He has been the founder and program director of the AA Jeddah Visiting School since 2015, which critically archives and studies Makkah, a city sacred to all Muslims and home to the holiest site in Islam, the Ka'aba.

A historian and archivist, Hussam's work is political and sometimes subversive. He is a partner at Studio Bound, a design collaborative based between London and Saudi, and holds a masters in architecture from the Architectural Association in London. Most recently, Hussam curated the Saudi Pavilion at the Venice Biennale of Architecture.

Hussam gives Open/Ended an inside view into his Makkah project, his process of archiving social histories through research and storytelling, and much more.
