Totalitarian Technology

Author: Danna Albala

“At first people will relate through technology. This same part of their day-to-day and moment-to-moment, since it will be through it, will be marked a lot in clothing, attitude and quality of life. Since the score enters the the way they dress. A large part will wear high-end and formal clothes. The homes will all be modern with a beautiful facade, just as the society is ahead with technology as most of the houses have smart devices and so on. It is how they handle electrical appliances. Regarding the means of transport, flying cars will be used and there will be no public transport. The streets will have a lot of publicity. In relation to the environment, there will be progress since the use of fuel (which generates a lot of bad waste for the environment) will be stopped and society will be more aware of care.” Danna Albala


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.
