Simultaneously with our neglect of their programmatic, symbolic, and haptic potential, floorspace became the dominant economic metaphor for architectural space: call it square meterism. But the square meter, in the parlance of real estate, is really a three-dimencional volume through the entire space. And the floor itself is actually a thick slab, sometimes a “false floor” containing mysteries similar to those of the ceiling.
