The relevant places to look are xdisp.c, dispnew.c, and dispextern.h.
IOW, the Emacs display engine.  It currently _knows_ that the
minibuffer is at bottom and that the mode line is the last screen line
of any window.  See, for example, the macro MATRIX_MODE_LINE_ROW in

Don't hesitate to ask more questions: this might sound like a simple
project, but it can be much harder if you don't know where to look.

Good luck, and thanks in advance for working on this.
