The Automotive Life Insurance Building (4140 Canal Street; 1963) was one such project (above). Designed by Curtis & Davis, the office building was the recipient of multiple national and regional awards. Alumaglass used the building's image in its August 1964 Louisiana Architect promotion.
Alumaglass also fabricated Albert Ledner's circular windows that pivoted along the horizontal. These were used in the buildings he designed for the National Maritime Union in Manhattan, New York (1963-67).
