MIMOA stops permanently Author: Mieke, Posted: May 12th, 2019 Filed under: news

After 12,5 years… the curtain falls for MIMOA.
I would like to thank the dedicated fans, users and partners, who co-created MIMOA, for all the effort, support and joy in the past years.
It was an honour to assist you all in your search for the architectural gems around the World and it was with great joy to see that by handing you the simple tools of MIMOA you helped eachother discovering architecture around the globe.

Keep on travelling and sharing!
I am convinced that with all the platforms, socials and apps available these days, you will do fine without MIMOA.

Follow MIMOA on Insta
All social accounts and pages fo MIMOA will end as well, except for the MIMOA Instagram account. This insta account will stay in the air and will be managed by Nazar, one of the most active MIMOA members. Follow him on Insta and stay tuned to discover great architecture

May 23rd MIMOA.eu will shut down permanently.
All project and account info will be removed. If you wish to download any info or guides from MIMOA, make sure to do it before this date.

All the very best to you all!

Donating to MIMOA Author: Mieke, Posted: April 25th, 2018 Filed under: Uncategorized

We have done our very best, but unfortunately we did not achieve our funding goal at Kickstarter.
The outcome is different than hoped for, but at the same time we are very proud of what we have achieved and of all the positive and positive reviews / tweets / posts we received during the campaign.

What happens now?
MIMOA needs a technical innovation to keep up with the current digital developments and to continue to grow, that is a fact. So we will consider how we can shape the future of MIMOA and how we can raise the essential investment in other ways. We are not giving up!

Donate directly to MIMOA!
Unfortunately all donations that came in on Kickstarter are automatically refunded. As some of the backers indicated to wish to give the donation anyway, we decided to offer the option to donate directly to MIMOA on our own website. If you love and care for MIMOA, you can here voluntarily donate to MIMOA:



Every little bit helps and with your donation we can still make the first steps towards a new MIMOA!

Read here more information about how to donate and what you can, connect and profit from your donation: mimoa.eu/blog/donate

Thank YOU! 💚

Support MIMOA on Kickstarter! Author: Mieke, Posted: March 20th, 2018 Filed under: Uncategorized

Screenshot MIMOA Kickstarter Video

We are excited to announce that today we launched the MIMOA crowdfund campaign on Kickstarter, with the goal to realize a mobile-first redesign of MIMOA that travels with you wherever you go. To get off to a flying start we invite you to visit our Kickstarter page, donate and choose your reward.

In the past 11 years MIMOA proved its existence and serves a growing community of traveling architects and architecture lovers, but technology has overtaken us and we urgently need to renew our software. In order to secure our valuable user-generated content and implement improvements you have so fiercely desired (yes, we got the message!), we are reaching out to all architecture fans around the world to  help build a complete new MIMOA: an advanced and innovative platform, future-proof to handle the growing number of visitors ánd optimised for mobile.

“I strongly believe in the future of MIMOA because there are still so much architectural treasures to be unearthed.  With architecture as our mutual passion, I am convinced that together we can take MIMOA to the next level.”  – Mieke Vullings, founder of MIMOA

Let's do this together. We are counting on your support! hartje groen

Desayuno con Ramon Esteve Author: Mieke, Posted: March 8th, 2018 Filed under: events, news, social

IMG_2886-bn01-1024x683Recently I visited Valencia and was invited by Ramon Esteve Estudio to join them for their daily office breakfast.

Read what we discussed on their website >>
The blog is in Spanish, but see below the translation of a part of the blog.

It was a pleasure to talk with them about their work and MIMOA and to share our ambitions and inspirations.
Thanks Ramon and staff for your generous hospitality! 


A fear…
Due to the strong increase of mass tourism, some cities are getting flooded with tourists of which Amsterdam and Barcelona are just 2 examples. As a result, these cities may go down because of their own popularity. They are becoming hardly impossible to live in, locals are moving away, (foreign) investors and tourists are taking over. Also the attention is strongly drawn to the World famous classical attractions, disregarding the beauty and potential of places in the city which are less famous, more hidden but certainly just as (or even more) interesting.

A dream…
Architecture connecting people, making the World a better and safe place to live in. To be surrounded with like-minded people, sharing experiences, discovering new places…  releasing lots of positive and creative energy that catches on

A challenge…
For MIMOA to take an active role in preventing the above fear by spreading tourism and unlocking destinations.

Where do you usually find inspiration?
I mostly find my inspiration, while travelling: experiencing other cultures and meeting local people.

An advice…
Travel as much as you can to enjoy the real experience, instead of just a paper/online journey. And if you do, try to pass through your destination as a local by talking to locals, turning to the unbeaten track and discovering the hidden gems.

Sto Isoned: Global presence, local knowledge Author: Mieke, Posted: January 25th, 2018 Filed under: MIMOA guides, partners

Guide Sto 9-11 memorial

Architecture guide Sto Isoned

This week, during the trade fair Gevel Online 2018 in Rotterdam, Sto Isoned presented a new architecture guide, created by MIMOA. The booklet shows expressive architecture all around the world, built with Sto products and systems. The 16 carefully selected projects – including the 9/11 Memorial Museum in New York, designed by Davis Brody Bond and Snøhetta, Sogn & Fjordane Art Museum, designed by C.F. Møller Architects and Vitrahaus in Weil am Rhein by Herzog & De Meuron – express Sto's concept of “Global presence, local knowledge”.

Download here the Architecture guide – Sto Isoned >>

As a facade specialist, Sto Isoned has been building a finer and energy-efficient building stock for 60 years, worldwide. Under the motto 'Building with conscience', they provide not only with first-class products, but also with advice and services that bring enormous added value for the building process. For these reasons we are pleased to welcome Sto Isoned as MIMOA Master.
