Futures 2084

Between sustainability and pollution

Between sustainability and pollution

Author: Abril Araujo

“My image/collage tries to portray a future where two realities are proposed: sustainability and pollution. Living together, they create a space in which, although we can highlight sustainable fashion and new technologies growing strongly, we can also see certain things that bring us closer to the climatic disasters that could occur if we lived with the same customs that we have today.” Abril Araujo


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.
