Verticality is an abstract conceptual and perceptual construct that is used in human sensory systems for orientation in space and time. It refers to a position or direction perpendicular to the horizontal plane, otherwise known as upright, plumb, or situated at the vertex.
NB: Vitruvius articulated the expression of architecture and human experience as inherently a vertical one.
