A building can represent dwelling, business and commerce, sexuality, or your own body awareness. These dreams often are interpreted by who is in the building or what happens to the building. For example, a destroyed-building dream may accompany the loss of family and friends or a time of ill health. A full building may mean business is good, or fertility is imminent. A building that is affected by a Freudian phallic symbol-any symbol reminiscent of the male sexual organ-may be an image of womanhood or sexual liaison.
