CEILING “Ceilings over the last 100 years have become increasingly thicker, required to house HVAC, plumbing, wiring surveillance in an otherwise inaccessible space. In the 21st century, a desire to erase the encrustations of modernism has led to a new dogma: the true ceiling, with protective panelling removed and the concrete slab and the entrails of the building left exposed.” ADDED ATTRIBUTES If ceilings continue to become ‘true ceilings’ where will the sensors inevitably make their way to? Perhaps the sensors will make their way to the more obvious and more easily measured services that the ceiling was hiding in the 20th century (where they haven’t already.)
