Regarding describing the area I got a bit stuck. Writing area as an infinite sum of contributions, you quickly end up with a series for [itex]\pi^2[/itex], but it was not one I could find in my normal handbook. Perhaps someone better at doing math with infinite series can confirm that you do end up with a "known" series for [itex]\pi^2[/itex]?
