What does it mean when you dream about a building?

In contemporary society, we live much of our lives in one sort of building or another. Thus, buildings in a dream may simply be stages for other kinds of dream scenarios (i.e., they do not necessarily have a symbolic meaning in and of themselves). Particular kinds of buildings may also symbolize the institution or business they house (e.g., a school building may symbolize public education). Buildings, especially houses, may also represent the self, particularly the physical body. In many-storied buildings, movement between floors sometimes symbolizes rising or falling in status or awareness.
