Ames room - although the room is not square and out of align, the mind's eye relies on memory to reconstruct the room to appear square. As a result the depth cues are all messed up so a person changes size depending on their location in the room.

The brain relies on our memory of houses to make this cutout look like a real house. Even when we start to see it at a different angle the mind still holds to memory and make it appear that the angles are square and the lines are parallel.

Your brain is constantly interpreting the world

Depending on viewing angle, the shape appears (is interpreted) as a triangle.
