Helping the Unemployed Architect and Outsourcing Architecture, Livingstone Mukasa of Archability.com

Livingstone Mukasa is the founder of Archability.com, an online marketplace for design professionals. On Archability.com, architects, designers, and others in the building design industry can find work, bid on projects, and hire outsourced talent. Archability is a matchmaker that pairs those needing architectural and building design services with those who offer these services.

Archability aims to put back to work some of the unemployed architects who have been suffering ever since the real estate bubble burst in 2008. In today’s interview, Livingstone talks about how he went from being an unemployed architect himself to pitching Archability the Demo Silicon valley technology conference. Livingstone’s story is inspiring for any architect who has an entreprenuerial spirit and wants to apply design training to a parallel field.
