Futures 2084

Uninhabitable Land

Uninhabitable Land

Author: María Josefina Álvarez Ageitos

“Minimally in 2050 thanks to the human race, the planet will begin to suffer such drastic and irreparable damage that it will quickly begin to destroy itself, added to this by explosions, nuclear wars and the lack of resources. Thus becoming an uninhabitable piece of burned land, returning to its origins before the existence of life on Earth”. Maria Josefina Álvarez Ageitos


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.
