Between 2000 and 2007, the Department of International Programs at the School of Architecture, Design and Urbanism of the University of Buenos Aires (FADU UBA), developed the Buenos Aires 2050 program. The program intended to foster thinking about the life in the city in the future. It was geared towards people involved with the university, other education centers, as well as citizens from the Buenos Aires Metropolitan Area.

A series of calls were made, encouraging a wide range of community members to imagine the future of Buenos Aires, expressing their hopes and expectations, desires and fears. The results were published in 2008 by the FADU UBA, the Fondo Nacional de las Artes, and the OLA, in the book Buenos Aires 2050 imágenes del futuro/decisiones del presente (Buenos Aires 2050 images of the future / decisions of the present). The contents reflect the ideas of neighbors, students, scientists, and professionals living and working in the Metropolitan Area of ​​Buenos Aires, Argentina. Over 400 people participated this call.

An Advisory Committee of 15 experts (sociologists, anthropologists, scientists, lawyers, film directors, urban planners, educators, science fiction experts, and architects), reviewed the submissions and joined a Public Dialogue Panel. Between 2002 and 2004 the program carried out three calls and three exhibitions in Buenos Aires. It also and took part in other five exhibitions organized by the City of Buenos Aires, the University of Buenos Aires, and the Universal Forum of Cultures Barcelona 2004.

The slogan was: «Imagine you are in the year 2050, in Buenos Aires. Share with us a testimony of what you see, hear, feel, touch, smell, do, speak, think or tour. Send us a presentation of something that can be seen, touched, felt, walked through or listened to. Share us a drawing, a story, a blueprint, a video, a graphic, a story, an installation, a film, an object, or a photo. Or also an essay, a painting, a postcard, a gift, a souvenir, a story, a web page. Any format or combination of those is welcomed, share us whatever you want!.”
