I did find it funny that after all the initial talk of mazes we never actually saw anything like that in the movie. Unless you could that one set of stairs that ends nowhere.
I believe you're being too literal. It's very strongly implied that to build ANY kind of architecture within someone's mind is very, very difficult (not like building in the real world - otherwise you could just hire a real architect.) We don't know what sort of obstacles a "subconscious architect" is acting against when they design - maybe it's extremely difficult just to keep the setting sane and orderly (fighting against the natural irrationality of the mind). So, the kind of mind needed to build such settings within the mind probably needs to be quick enough, subtle enough, clever enough, mathematically and geometrically inclined enough, to be able to draw a complicated maze in one minute. It sounds very reasonable to me.
