Despite their confusing appearance and the fact that you can literally get lost inside them, maze-like structures are incredibly popular in the architecture and design worlds.

Mazes are fascinating because people are drawn to exploring them even when they know they're going to have a hard time fining their way out. But there's something amazing about the experience, which is why maze-like structures and elements are timeless in their popularity.

Maze-like structures exist in all shapes of sizes. There have been examples of department stores using maze-inspired architecture to keep customers browsing for products. Imaginative artists have even constructed surprisingly visually pleasing mazes using rows of cardboard boxes.

Clearly, there's something about these maze-like structures that enables them to seamlessly combine functionality and aesthetics, making them a popular choice for architects and designers of different persuasions.
