The Atlas of Shame represents the world through the relationships between inhabited space, architecture and the feeling of shame. The book touches 40 countries through 8 themes and asks the reader to reflect and question, social, political, economic, cultural reasons that make us qualify and perceive negatively a building, a city, a neighbourhood. The Atlas is an attempt to measure the values that gather or divide our time, where the meter used is the judgment we give to the ways of living and building space. By combining "the most social of emotions" with the "most social of the arts", the Atlas draws a geography of collective values and emotions; a map of world territories on the border between the intimate and the universal.
