Sanborn’s Insurance Co. Building

McAllen, TX
Year Built – 1963
Architects – David P. Ashcroft
Such Ashcroft designs as the circular Sanborn’s Insurance Co. pavilion on S. 10th Street in McAllen, next to the Fairway, and the Bailey H. Dunlap Memorial Library in La Feria of 1963 demonstrate how he extrapolated a distinctive approach from York’s methods that, in these buildings, generated architecture from sun screening and sun shading.
