Latifah Iddriss


This is also the philosophy of young architect Latifah Iddriss, who has spent the last years studying the technology of the kiosks that line the streets of Accra and the country, seeing them as opportunities rather than blocks, and designed a new one that will travel the country, collecting and exhibiting material culture, – photographs, pictures, sculptures, documents, oral histories etc for ANO’s Cultural Encyclopedia.

The kiosk’s structure echoes the methodology of the Encyclopedia with each matrix representing an event or story in the architect’s life; the subjective art of life and the more objective science of structure, of form, merging into one.
