Modernist trompe l'oeil

I wonder if these are genuine.

The premise is that they're photos of rooms painted with anamorphic patterns which seem random from most angles, but which, from specific viewpoints, reveal perfect geometric shapes. The photos from 'wrong' angles presumably would be difficult to fake (perhaps using 3D modelling software?), and hence are believable, but the fact that the rooms are so empty made me suspicious. On further examination, the rooms seem to be corridors, lobbies and other credibly empty public areas, so I'm inclined to think they're real.

Whatever; I like them!
