12 Casas Ruca, Grupo Los 90, Vista Hermosa
Undurraga Devés, architects.
Calle Uno, calle Jorge Inostroza, Huechuraba.
The different groups of houses built along Jorge Inostroza street, just where the slope of the hills start, show how this kind of social housing can adapt to their physical context and to the specific characteristics of its future inhabitants, far from the typologic solutions normally used, resulting in anonymous and inhumane ghettos. In these cases,the special relation between the houses and the steep slope of their site, on one case, or the inclusion of architectural elements inherited from the world vision of the Mapuche people, make them a unique example of cases where material scarcity can go along good architecture.
