Paving the way for those who might one day be deemed architectural technologists, Iddris Sandu is a pioneering young technologist seeking to level the playing field for fellow African youth & other marginalized groups. Having worked with the likes of creatives such as Jay-Z, Nipsey Hussle, Louis Vuitton, & Off-White's Virgil Abloh, Iddris has been making waves since before he turned 18. Not only is Iddris breaking ground in the use of emerging technology in creative spaces, but also in creating unique and sustainable designs to impact some of the most vulnerable populations in society.

Today Iddris visits Google to discuss his journey from a young aspiring engineer to a technologist, as well as the role of technology as an agent for sustainable change in the Black Lives Matter movement in the US, the diaspora, and across the continent of Africa.

Moderated by Kemi Shokunbi.
