Iddris Sandu is a Ghanaian-born, Los Angeles-bred 22-year-old self-proclaimed Creative Architect. In 2017, he conceived the world’s first smart retail experience, The Marathon Store, with the late rapper Nipsey Hussle. When he's not designing, he's spreading knowledge to the world through a method he likes to refer to as exposure; a teaching which deals with the observation of the real-time.

What are some disciplines we can learn, and guides we can apply? Do we have all the answers? Are we looking closely enough? Join creative architect Iddris Sandu and he shares his design ethos, practices and perspective of the role culture and design have in a technology age.
