Futuristic Coexistence

Author: MarĂ­a Gabriela HenrĂ­quez Vidal

“I imagine that in the future we will have a variety of man-like machines coexisting with us, as well as beings from other planets since we too will be able to travel to outer space as easily as taking a car ride. We will be able to purchase upgrades for our senses such as computer glasses or mechanical arms to be stronger, etc. We will have areas with a lot of vegetation, as well as very modern cities full of people, connected to each other by various means of public and private transportation, spacious and fast, designed for a great population”.

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: 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.
