In July of 2020, the Preservation Foundation introduced Landmarks Discovered, a virtual series exploring the works of Palm Beach architects and how they have shaped the character of the town. Each episode focuses on a landmarked building and shares the history of the property through a virtual tour, archival materials, and expert commentary. The virtual format allows the Foundation to connect with a broader audience and create a dialogue about how architecture defines the community.
Landmarks Discovered serves as a vehicle for the Foundation to discuss the significance of historic preservation in the 21st century. The hosts, Executive Director Amanda Skier and Director of Programming Katie Jacob, both hold graduate degrees in Historic Preservation. Their insightful interviews with design professionals and fellow preservationists acknowledge the practical challenges of rehabilitation projects and elucidate the intricate details that distinguish original craftsmanship from modern-day construction.
The archival collections of the Foundation and the fundamental role that research plays in successful rehabilitation projects are central themes in the series. Each episode takes viewers behind the scenes to learn how primary sources such as architectural plans and historic photographs inform the planning and design of a project. In sharing these primary sources, the series also facilitates greater access to the Foundation’s archives.
