Futures 2084

The Gap

The Gap

“The skin is linked to technology through cables that go to different parts of the body, increasing knowledge much more quickly and turning people into superior beings. Homes will be taller and antigravity. Coexistence with smart devices will be beneficial and will help the people left on Earth. Public spaces are not in good condition after having experienced a very strong war that devastated everything that was on it. To avoid any type of disaster, the people with the most power will take shelter in antigravity housing, thus leaving low-income people on Earth”. Diana Belén Aliaga


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.
