TAIPEI–A unique post office built in the shape of a shipping box opened Friday in southern Taiwan’s Pingtung County, with the aim of banishing the traditional perception of post offices as rigid places, officials from the Chunghwa Post Co. said that day.

The Fangshan Post Office (枋山郵局) in rural Fangshan Township is the first post office in Taiwan to be constructed in the shape of a shipping box.

The green and white exterior of the building features the image of a shrike, the bird that appears on the corrugated shipping boxes of the Chunghwa Post, the official postal service of Taiwan. It also features images of mangoes and onions, which are local agricultural products.

Large screens on the roof also open up every hour, making the building look like an opened box.     [FULL  STORY]
