* The Barbican art centre in the City of London, which includes three theatres, three cinemas, a concert hall, exhibition halls, two art galleries, a two-floor public library, a huge greenhouse, a conference centre, and several miscellaneous function rooms. Ever since it was opened in 1982, visitors have been complaining about how hard it is to find your way around, and various internal rearrangements, floor-number reassignments, and signage systems, have failed to solve the problems. Gets extra points for being surrounded by a collection of office and residential buildings that themselves consist of a labyrinth of [[LayeredCity ground-level streets and upper-level public walkways and staircases]], to the point that [[TrailOfBreadcrumbs yellow lines]] are painted on the floor from the edges of the area to help you get to the entrances of the art centre.

* The [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Palace_of_the_Parliament Palace of Parliament]] of Bucharest, Rumania. A whole ''city district'' was demolished to construct it. Its dimensions are 270m by 240 m, 86 m high and 92 m underground. It has 1,100 rooms in 12 stories, with four additional underground levels currently available and in use (another four in different stages of completion). Its floor area is 340 000 m2 (''thirty-four'' hectares! That is 77.3 acres for American tropers.) It is the second largest building in the world after the Pentagon.

It is currently occupied by two parliamentary chambers, with offices for all the members and their staff, three museums, and a conference centre, but it's still estimated that only around 30% of it is used. * The Barbican art centre in the City of London, which includes three theatres, three cinemas, a concert hall, exhibition halls, two art galleries, a two-floor public library, a huge greenhouse, a conference centre, and several miscellaneous function rooms.

** While the main campus of the Far Eastern Federal University in Vladivostok, Russia, is a new construction, its main compound is a [[https://pp.vk.me/c621726/v621726155/3f88d/3Vyw0cE3Vzw.jpg veritable maze of six huge buildings constructed on a hillside and wrapped in a network of passages and skyways]], so you can actually walk a whole kilometer from the Building E on one side of the campus to the Building S on the other one without ever going outside. At least there's uniform numbering of the floors, but this still doesn't help much.

** The Main Building of the Moscow State University. One of the famous Stalin's Sisters, it's a huge skyscraper on the top of a hill overlooking the Moskva river, and this city in the city contains everything a student or a professor might need, from a dormitories and apartments to barber shops, dry cleaners, a post office and a police station, not mentioning such trivialities as labs and classes. And as for its basement, there are still UrbanLegends about what's hidden there (actually, just a power plant and HVAC machines), and where do its passages connect.[[note]][[UsefulNote/MoscowMetro Metro-2]] connection is probably a truth, as is a tunnel to the Nuclear Physics Institute some half a mile away on the other side of the campus.[[/note]]
