HYDRIC RESOURCES – Use and abuse of water in developed countries

Many things can be said about the University of Buenos Aires – UBA – Argentina,  (4 of the five Nobel prizes owned by Argentina, belong to students from UBA), The FADU (Architecture, Urban, and Design Faculty) is the design faculty, and is one of the most privileged and recognized places in Argentina. It has strong creative influences from ULM, Germany and Tomas Maldonado.

Whenever you think about a designer job, you may thing about a peaceful environment, a studio…you alone in front of the computer some cool music playing and typefaces and images in your screen. If you ever attend Ciudad Universitaria (the FADU building), you will have a completely different experience. First of all, watch your step while you walk! Many students are on the floor cutting and putting their stuff together because they are tired (they probably haven’t slept all night) and they are hurrying to get their presentation ready before class starts. Architects, graphic, industrial, fashion, and landscape designers will be running, talking, walking or whatever-ing. You never know what you are going to see when you pass that corner, FADU never gets tired of surprising you!

Because the building is a public place, it is an unforgettable experience while you advance your career. In one way or another, your designs will meet social consciousness. It might be in that book you read one and again to pass a very difficult exam, or in some design brochure you had to make about a public hospital, culture, personality, etc. in your typography or design class. Some students get involved in politics and share with everyone their opinion about how to improve education conditions and so on.

All in all, no matter how challenging the design task is, many solutions will be provided by the large amount of students. This is the richest treasure of this unique university: one problem, one thousand solutions. The diversity of opinions combined with a high teaching level will guarantee excellent results.

Today I would like to share some posters about different world issues made by students in their last year of Graphic Design classtaught by Catedra Gabriele.

Enough with words, it’s time to look at some images … I bet you will be as fascinated as me with the results!
