In the context of the multiple urban transformations taking place in large métropoles, this paper analyzes, through various means, the way in which contemporary urbanism practices serve to fragment the spatial-temporal conditions upon which the spatiality of daily urban life is constituted. An ethnographic approach to the everyday mobility of Santiago's residents is applied, in order to describe the way in which urban dwellers experience urban fragmentation by devising different mobility strategies to weave their way through the disconnected, interrupted and segregated spatialities into which the city has been decomposed, resulting in fragmentation of the spatial aspects of daily life. The research results account for the consequences of this fragmenting urbanism', demonstrating effects regarding the conditions of social exclusion. The results are considered to be useful for the proposal of possible urban interventions designed to lower the impact of fragmentation and the resulting exclusion.
