Well, you can build a glazed wall that is load bearing, but it wouldn't be a curtain wall (thats why its a "curtain" wall). It would require rather heavy "mullions" in steel as opposed to aluminum (thats a code issue). Of-course, curtain walls are structural in that they are designed to resist lateral wind loads.
