* In the ''Series/DoctorWho'' episode "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS17E5TheHornsOfNimon The Horns of Nimon]]", the alien Nimon demand sacrifices from the Skonnon Empire to provide for them. They use victims from the planet Aneth, who find that the walls seal behind them. (A TwiceToldTale based on the legend of Theseus and the Labyrinth.) It turns out the labyrinth is actually a giant computer and the changing walls are the circuits making connection. The entrance is actually a hologram of a wall.
** Also used in the newer episode, "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS32E11TheGodComplex The God Complex]]", where the Doctor, Rory and Amy are trapped in what appears to be a seventies hotel, with corridors that twist and shift and can end up going on for miles. The above-mentioned Nimon also receives a Shout Out- the Monster of the Week is said to be a distant evolutionary cousin of it.
** Used again in the recent episode "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS35E11HeavenSent Heaven Sent]]", [[spoiler:where the Doctor is trapped inside his own confession dial, creating a prison of his own nightmares, which is represented by a huge, concentric castle, deserted aside from himself and [[EldritchAbomination a shambling, silent, cloaked figure which never stops chasing him, except for a few seconds when the Doctor tells a deep, personal truth.]] Whenever the Doctor tells the truth, the castle's walls move, opening some doors and closing others. Also, whenever a room is left on its own, the contents reset itself to their previous position before the Doctor's visit. Aside from this, nothing else changes, so this is a Downplayed example of this trope.]]

Added DiffLines:

* WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse features one of these in "Serious Steven." Steven becomes increasingly uncomfortable throughout his time in the maze, and for a while, the Crystal Gems are stumped. Whatever direction they choose, they seem to encounter the same three rooms over and over. It baffles everyone until [[spoiler: Steven realizes that the reason he isn't feeling well is because he's feeling motion sick. The hallways of the maze are moving so that they always lead to the same three rooms. Garnet then breaks the floor, exposing the mechanism that controls the maze.]]

Added DiffLines:

* Some of the architecture in ''VideoGame/AmnesiaAMachineForPigs'' changes as Mandus moves through the corridors of the machine. He might go into a small side area, only to turn around and have a much longer backtrack through a series of unfamiliar halls, or going into a small cul-de-sac might have a different exit when he turns back around.

* Ducklair Tower from PaperinikNewAdventures qualifies as this, as the [=AI=] Uno can control and shift around the entire inside. In one story, he uses this to keep a group of robbers, the police and Angus Fangus from running into each other for four hours.
