This paper synthesizes several years of research in the field of the theory of architecture and design, and undergraduate and graduate teaching. Specifically, it is a work that reflects on how architecture and design should face the most important phenomena of our present and near future. These phenomena refer to environmental, technological and anthropological aspects, and the strategies to cope with them, involving alter-native design thinking, fiction and practice in which futurabilities and futurizations depart from the displacement generated by post-utopian visions based on dissidence and subalternity. This is what we call Xenofutures, a design for curing-caring a damaged world.
