Futures 2084

Underground Life

Underground Life

Author: Brittany Michelle Moran Vera

“This work was based on a selection and composition with photographs. It presents what in my opinion will characterize people in an imaginary 2084 future: clothing, housing, equipment, energy, means of transportation. Basically it shows the adaptation of man and architecture with earth, just as earth skins are currently displayed on green terraces. Due to its advantages, in the future we will adapt to underground life, leaving the vegetal layer and ecosystem on the surface for crops, vegetation and energy training.” Brittany Michelle Moran Vera

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.
