Mutación Block explores the living conditions defined by the block public housing typology on the
periphery of Santiago. In recent years, residents have started building improvised, illegal additions
to their existing block apartments. This phenomenon is a response to crowded living conditions
and the inflexibility of the original structure, which is repeated over and over throughout housing
projects in Chile.
