Futures 2084

Transform What we Know

Transform What we Know

Author: MarĂ­a Paz Bestani

“In a graphic way, through photos, drawings, collages, diagrams, among others, we had to represent proposals of how we imagined the future in the year 2084. We were guided by a series of questions, having to answer at least six of them. This is how we had to challenge our creativity and set our minds on the future to be able to represent it. This is, transform what we already know into something new.” Maria Paz Bestani

 

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.
