Developed after World War I by the Libbey Owens Glass Company as an experiment in building a German style glass building in the United States, the glass cracked soon after construction. James T. Solomon devised a solution to the problem. This is one of the most unusual buildings in downtown Winston-Salem. It is clad in 65,869 original glass blocks, measuring 8” long, 5” high and 4” thick, and once featured rooftop parking on the north wing of the building. The rooftop parking was replaced with solar panels and a skylight.
