Promises of the Future

“Imagined futures year 2084: Interaction with other beings from other planets is achieved. Man discovers a new place for life. While on Earth there will be a large number of older adults, rejuvenated by the help of technology and medicine. The clothing will be unisex, made of pure and simple materials. Their relationship with nature is through organic agriculture and hydroponics. The entire population will be vegetarian or vegan. Renewable energies will be developed throughout the planet as the only means of heating or cooling. In addition to lithium for car batteries, which will be electric. The houses will be smaller and more modular, although there will also be gigantic buildings with smaller apartments. Communication will take place through social networks, electronic or technological means.” Marta Sandra Bartucci


This imagination is part of the pedagogical proposal of the Ecenarro Turrillo Chair, Introducci√≥n al Conocimiento Proyectual 1 (ICP 1), Ciclo B√°sico Com√ļn (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.
