This beautiful landmark in New Orleans was built in 1941 and was designed by architect, August Perez. The art moderne style is a close cousin of art deco. Art moderne was known for its curving forms and long horizontal lines. The streamlined appearance of the Blue Plate Mayonnaise building is a fine example.
Production of mayonnaise at Blue Plate ceased in 2000. Recently, the factory has been redesigned as apartments.
