Futures 2084

A Healthier Year

A Healthier Year

Author: Liz Paola Santa Cruz

“I thought that the year 2084 would be a “healthier” year, that is, a year that is more friendly to nature, since if in these years we do not begin to change the way in which we are exploiting the world, we would not even reach that year. In those times we would go through many wars and pandemics due to the amount of viruses thawing from melting glaciers due to global warming. That would cause a number of people to start using wooden feet, arms and hands as body parts.” Liz Paola Santa Cruz

 

This imagination is part of the pedagogical proposal of the Ecenarro Turrillo Chair, Introducción al Conocimiento Proyectual 1 (ICP 1), Ciclo Básico Común (CBC), Universidad de Buenos Aires UBA. It corresponds to the initial sketch exercise of the first semester of 2022, linked to the Program 2084 Imagined Futures from the South.

Students were invited to dream and develop utopias with the precept of traveling to the future, the year 2084, and propose imaginations/transformations, understanding that design and its project disciplines are tools to improve contemporary and everyday living, with a sustainable commitment.

The teaching team was composed by Graciela Ecenarro, Andrea Santangelo, Silvina de Gennaro, Juan I. Cabello, Florencia de la Quintana, Natalia Naredo, Luciana Quartaruolo, Santiago Ortí, Andrea López y Natalia Ardissone.

Note: given that some of the imaginations have been delivered without titles, from the editing area of 2084 Futures Imagined from the South, we decided to give them a title with the intention of matching them with others that do have, helping to distinguish them.
