“It was challenging to create something that doesn’t exist. I found it inspiring. There is still hope.
In the year 2084, after many years of suffering major pandemics, civil wars, and climate problems, humanity will finally begin to value the environment, moments with friends, family, and the simple things in life. The human body will relate more naturally to technology; clothing will be used more and more as a form of expression and will be even more technological; the constructions will be carried out in an ecological way, always trying to integrate nature and technology in a healthy way; public spaces will be better designed for the well-being and fun of all. Finally, the ecosystem will be a little closer to rebalancing.” Brisa Yanella Ledezma Zeniquel

 

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.
