The nautically-themed landmark was originally designed by New Orleans modernist architect Albert Ledner in 1968 as headquarters for the National Maritime Union. Ledner apprenticed under famed architect Frank Lloyd Wright in the late 1940’s and developed his own playful style. This fanciful approach to modernism was long dismissed by design purists but The Maritime is now part of a wave of modernist architecture now seen in an entirely new light.
