* [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beverly_Hills_Supper_Club_fire The Beverly Hills Supper Club]] outside Cincinnati. Built in TheThirties as a simple nightclub, by TheSeventies the owners had constructed numerous additions, mostly made out of wood, turning it into a maze of event rooms and corridors laid out with no consistent design. The building had no sprinkler system or fire alarm, and very few fire exits. When a fire broke out in 1977, the confusing layout of the building hindered patrons from escaping, and ultimately 165 people died.

* In [[AllThereInTheManual one of the historical files]] for ''Literature/Brennus'', a man named Emyr Blackhill, a scifi writer and [[RealityWarping reality warper]] of immense power, disappeared when he was twenty-two. Five years later, earth-based telescopes witnessed strange activity on the surface of Mars. It was Emyr, having used his power to not only create Martian life, but also a palace bigger than the state of California. Today, this is all that remains of the former empire after Blackhill's temporary conquest of the Earth, along his corpse transfixed to his throne.

* Train stations with multiple platforms can get like this and it is not uncommon to end up having to go over or under multiple platforms to get where you need to be. Special mention goes to Edinburgh Waverly. It has multiple levels, eighteen platforms and a shopping area interspersed throughout. It does not help that the platform numbers are not laid out very logically.

* The old [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Greyfriars_bus_station Greyfriars Bus station in Northhampton]], UK. It was voted the ugliest building in Britain for several years running, cost the council millions of pounds, and was nigh impossible to navigate. It's carpark closed down in 2007 because chemicals were leaking through it, making the travel centre even ''less'' travel friendly. A "Top 10 ugliest buildings" programme of Channel 4 did a test and it took them 15 minutes to navigate between connecting ''buses''.
When push came to shove, the Northhampton city council opted to blow it up and build a ''new one'' instead because it easier that way.
