Futures 2084

So Far so Close

So Far so Close

Author: Juan Bogado, Andrés Bogado Benítez

“The future is something that is frightening. Thinking about it from the design point of view makes it easier to create an utopia where we can survive the disaster that we leave behind every day as humanity. The future is not close, nor is it far away. We are constantly advancing with little ability to measure our actions.” Juan Bogado, AndrĂ©s Bogado BenĂ­tez


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.
