Florida Matters: Florida Architecture

Florida Matters: Florida Architecture

Florida has its share of boring, disposable architecture -- from sprawling neighborhoods of stucco houses to buildings that age quickly and are torn down just as fast. But there are plenty of gems on the Florida landscape -- and the idea of preserving more historic buildings is gaining traction. We take a look at historic preservation, and take you on a tour of one historic neighborhood that's coming back to life.
