Created using Ultrafractal.
A Fractal architecture created using an escape-time formula for 3D IFS (mmf4.ufm-3D IFS from the Ultrafractal formula database).
The rooms/corridors where created using RIFS flags to open up the insides of the fractal.
Nothing much special about the lighting - it's two sources, one from the centre of the camera and one offset slightly using a modified Phong model that allows a surface "roughness" factor.

Great job.

I've seen a lot fractal animations before, but never a walk inside a true fractal building!

Great concept and realization. :D

Cool! Looks like something out of 'Tomb Raider'... I'm expecting Lara Croft to come running round the corner, guns ready... :)

great work dave, animated 3d fractals are very few and far between - especially ones of this quality :)

may i ask what the rendering time for a frame is like on average?

Hi Thomas, I just tried re-rendering the 1st frame at 1024*768 and it took 9 mins 18 secs - the whole animation is 768 frames.

Oops - that's on a 3GHz P4HT

Thanks Thomas.
I'll have to re-check the renderiong time, it's ages since I rendered this.
It's from a render done at 1024*768 then resized down to 320*240 but even that wasn't enough to remove all the aliasing, I'll have to do another render but this time with Ultrafractal's AA enabled on the 1024*768 version.
