Futures 2084



Author: Benjamin Panelo

“I believe that in the future people will weigh more since we are going to move around using a kind of floating chair. The technology is going to be very advanced, and I think we are going to be connected to it almost all day. We will be able to work from anywhere and communicate with anyone since there will also be Wi-Fi everywhere. I think we are going to wear comfortable clothing because since everything is going to be online and it will not be necessary to dress formally. As for nature, I think that it will continue to be there and we will be able to take good care of the environment although obviously, there will be many more buildings than green places. And as for the animals, I think they will continue to be the same as always but somewhat bored because we will not care for them. We are not going to pay close attention to them since we will be hooked on technology all day long.” Benjamin Panelo


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.

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.
