    both can be correct depending on the context - but usually of would be more common

    We would expect 'of', but 'in' is certainly not wrong.

    The corridors of the building.

    They are both correct, but different context. If you use 'in', it confirms that all the corridors are internal, whereas using 'of', could mean that the corridors are both inside and outside the building.
