Coll-Barreau Arquitectos has designed what has to be one of the most beautiful bureaucratic buildings ever. The Health Department building in the town of Bilbao, Spain was designed to be aesthetically pleasing while meeting the city's strict building code.

Coll-Barreau Arquitectos' design features an impressive glass building that has the look of an unfolded piece of origami paper. The design helps the building incorporate natural light, minimizing the use of electricity.

Implications - The architecturally innovative building will certainly be a draw for tourists and businesses looking for a youthful office space that is fresh and inviting. The bureaucratic building is an unconventional alternative to the conventional office building.
