Futures 2084

Technological Coldness

Technological Coldness

Author: Tomás Bruzzese

“My proposal was to show to the public how I see the world in that year. In my opinion, technology is going to take a primary role in people, making other important things stop being present, such as social life or the practice of religion. On the other hand, the positive is what will happen with the vehicles since they will be electric and will be charged by solar panels. I think they will want to trash all the vehicles of the present due to their high consumption and toxic gases However, in the background it is seen that the natural world is present but strange, rare … In short, I see a cold and technological society in the future.” Tomás Bruzzese


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.
