Nanotechnological Future

Nanotechnological Future

Author: Agustina Herrera

“I wanted to convey a future in which machines and technology have advanced to the point of having air transportation and buildings with striking and functional architecture. Regarding nature, I imagined that there would be a shortage of it, representing the last thing that would be inside a dome.
1st skin: the epidermis
– We will have the same way of living as the one we are living now.
– We will be the same as we are now; there will be no change in our body.
2nd skin: clothing
– The clothing will be made of technological material and adjustable automatically.
– Nanotechnological materials made of tiny particles.
3rd skin: home
– The materials will be the same as mentioned above, nanotechnological.
– Construction techniques will depend on the person, and may have different shapes depending on taste. Nanotechnology will do all the work.
4th skin: city and economy
a- They will have very striking details that people will like and attract; all made based on nanotechnology.
f- There will begin to be no fuel, since today there are electric cars that pollute less.
5th skin: the ecosystem
a- Nature can improve since it is possible that there is less pollution.”

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.
