Futures 2084

Green Revolt

Green Revolt

Author: Agustín Espósito

“The year 2084 is characterized by a scenario of ecological crisis where climate change, deforestation, pollution and the loss of biodiversity have caused an unbalance between nature and human civilization. Nature, in an attempt to recover its space and its balance, has invaded cities, covering streets, bridges and urban infrastructure with vegetation.” Agustín Espósito

 

This imagination is part of the pedagogical proposal of the Ecenarro Turrillo Chair, Introducción al Conocimiento Proyectual 1 (ICP 1) [Introduction to Project Knowledge 1], Ciclo Básico Común (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 Olabarrieta.

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.
