Futures 2084

A World on Fire

A World on Fire

Author: Paula Labonia

“When I think about the future, I can only see the effects of global warming and environmental pollution. I believe that by the year 2084 we will not be able to live the same way we do now because our comforts will be greatly reduced. In my opinion, large companies and those responsible for this change will become aware of the problem once it is irreversible. I represented all this in my composition with a world on fire with a hand giving flowers to it, symbolizing how insignificant it would be. take action only when the damage has already been done.Paula Labonia


This imagination is part of the pedagogical proposal of the Ecenarro Turrillo Chair, IntroducciĂłn al Conocimiento Proyectual 1 (ICP 1), Ciclo BĂĄsico ComĂșn (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 OrtĂ­, Andrea LĂłpez y Natalia Ardissone.

Clarification: 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.
