What is future? What will be after the future? Which is the future’s future?
Starting from the Alec Ross’ book “The Industries of the Future”, the weekly magazine L’Espresso presents an interesting article in which the author, Leonardo Caffo, deals with the idea of a “primitive future” ( see S. Fujimoto, 2008, for “primitive future” in architecture) characterized by the return to an essential idea of life: a healthy society in deep connection with nature, where needs are again more important than objects. What the author underlines is the ongoing situation created by the global technological industry, more worried about assembling new eco-friendly machines and robots (in a definitely not ecological way) instead of working to enhance life conditions and environments.
Let’s stop for a while and realize that technology improvements should provide a better lifestyle under a valuable framework, not just in order to create new updated artifacts but to resolve/to face up to heavy problems such as pollution and urbanization, massive population increasing and migration. We are already alerted by “inverted” tendencies as for joining independent communities and niche consumptions, that confirm the need of a renovation and a deep change in future’s imagination. We strongly believe in the possibility of a brighter evolution for humanity.
