Futures 2084

From Technology to Nature

From Technology to Nature

Author: Carolina Pugelj

“In my proposal I present an idea of how I sense the future is going to be and how I would like it to be. On one hand we have an advanced world in which technology is very present and in which we live with robots. These make life¬†“simpler” since they perform actions for us. This can be seen in two ways, negatively or positively. On the other, we have a world in which we are not anchored in technology but instead decide to be more open, think for ourselves; a world in which we can be at peace and enjoy nature.” Carolina Pugelj


This imagination is part of the pedagogical proposal of the Ecenarro Turrillo Chair, Introducci√≥n al Conocimiento Proyectual 1 (ICP 1) [Introduction to Project Knowledge 1], Ciclo B√°sico Com√ļn (CBC), Universidad de Buenos Aires UBA. It corresponds to a sketch exercise done in 2023, linked to the Program 2084: Imagined Futures from the South.

Students were invited to dream and develop utopias with the motto 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 made up of Graciela Ecenarro, Andrea Santangelo, Silvina de Gennaro, Juan I. Cabello, Florencia de la Quintana, Natalia Naredo, Luciana Quartaruolo, Santiago Ortí, Andrea López, Natalia Ardissone and Mateo Olavarrieta.

Note: given that some of the imaginations have been delivered without a title, from the editing area of 2084 Futures Imagined from the South, we decided to give them a possible title with the intention of equaling them to other imaginations that do have them, simultaneously helping to distinguish them.
