A government office rarely rises above the minimum design requirements, especially if it houses such unpopular public institutions as offices for taxes and student loans. These buildings are typically human warehouses of bureaucratic industry—cubes within cubes bisected by long anonymous hallways with dead ends. In Groningen, the Netherlands, UNStudio has shaken up the usual government building typology, creating the undulating Education Executive Agency & Tax Offices, which is affectionately termed “the cruise ship” by locals.
