“My idea of ​​the future develops around the advanced problem of climate change. The world will be divided between those who consider recycling as one of the salvations for human life, trying to implement it in as many daily aspects as possible, and those who prioritize the modernity of technology, leaving aside the varied consequences on our environment and ourselves.” Paula Ehlert

 

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.

 

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.
