Futures 2084

Affected Nature

Affected Nature

Author: Hans Eichel

“In my proposal I wanted to show what I think the future will be like, taking the relationship with nature as the main theme and how it will be affected over time. For example, the link with the home I think is not going to be something that will matter to people in the future (that’s why in my drawing I made it small and in the background), since today you see how there are more and more buildings. Another means by which the environment is going to be affected will be the means of transport, since every day there are more people who use them and I think that there is a long way to go before they become aware of this. Another cause of this disaster is technology and how it affects people and the way they see the world. And in a corner I drew a person with recycled clothes showing that little by little the environment is going to be taken care of.” Hans Eichel


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.


Note: the title of this imagination has been granted by the editing area of 2084 Imagined Futures from the South. Since some of the imaginations have been presented without titles, we decided to give them one with the intention of helping to distinguish them.
