Futures 2084

Between Nature and Technology

Between Nature and Technology

Author: Tom√°s de C√°ndido

“In this collage I proposed a future in which green spaces and care for the environment predominate. Plus an almost full-time contact with technology, through skin implants, clothing with technology that can detect diseases, and almost fully controled houses through simple voice-activated devices, plus houses that adapt to the environment so as not to damage it, and houses on the ocean that would allow greater contact with nature.” Tom√°s de C√°ndido

 

This imagination is part of the pedagogical proposal of the Ecenarro Turrillo Chair, Introducci√≥n al Conocimiento Proyectual 1 (ICP 1), Ciclo B√°sico Com√ļn (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.
