Latifah Idriss

Artist

Latifah Idriss has travelled Ghana, documenting the kioskís different commercial, domestic, and hybrid usages, and has created a blueprint for kiosks of the future. She believes that there is a notion that art is devoid of function; and that this is what some think of as the difference between art and architecture, To her, architecture is sculpture that evolves into habitable forms that seek to meet the needs of the environment and the culture it represents. The aim of the designs she creates goes beyond an effort to meet utility; they are a way to envision form that is sensitive to the essence and personality of what they represent. Through design, she hopes to solve the problems that manifest around her. She is a BSC architecture student at KNUST. She has worked with Mobius Architecture, Archiafrika, and the Ashesi Design School Programmme.
