Towards Comprehensive Sustainability

“I started with a point of view on architecture, the city and its community in the future. Based on the questions I chose and answered, I decided to make a sequence contextualizing the current situation of the city and what surrounds it until I reached my vision. My work speaks of the changes that will probably occur both in people and in technology and the city, which will be more innovative and will guarantee environmental sustainability.” Melany Siñani Chino

 

This imagination is part of the pedagogical proposal of the Ecenarro Turrillo Chair, Introducción al Conocimiento Proyectual 2 (ICP 2) [Introduction to Project Knowledge 2], Ciclo Básico Común (CBC), Universidad de Buenos Aires UBA. It corresponds to a sketch exercise done in 2023, linked to the Program 2084: Imagined Futures from the South.

Students were invited to dream and develop utopias with the motto 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 made up of Graciela Ecenarro, Andrea Santangelo, Silvina de Gennaro, Juan I. Cabello, Florencia de la Quintana, Natalia Naredo, Luciana Quartaruolo, Santiago Ortí, Andrea López, Natalia Ardissone and Mateo Olabarrieta.

Note: given that some of the imaginations have been delivered without a title, from the editing area of 2084 Futures Imagined from the South, we decided to give them a possible title with the intention of equaling them to other imaginations that do have them, simultaneously helping to distinguish them.
