OMA fiction | non-fiction Author: Mieke, Posted: January 13th, 2016 Filed under: events, news

Ossip-van-DuivenbodeIn the coming months, OMI (Office for Metropolitan Information) is entirely devoted to OMA, the Office for Metropolitan Architecture. With the reopening of the Kunsthal, the completion of De Rotterdam and Timmerhuis this is a perfect opportunity to profile the work of OMA. OMI publishes a special map, organises excursions, and an accompanying exhibition at OMI’s own location gives insight into the work of the office in Rotterdam and The Hague.

The cities of Rotterdam and The Hague occupied a special position in the development of the early years of OMA. The region boasts the highest density of OMA projects in the world, with countless studies, designs, built and (already) demolished works. OMA has reflected on every facet of the urban experience in this region: buildings, urban planning, parks, interiors, culture, pop, dance and infrastructure. OMA Fiction | Non Fiction is a voyage of discovery through the work of OMA in Rotterdam and The Hague, past 40 years of thinking about this urban region. The map encourages tourists, architecture enthusiasts and OMA fans to experience the southern Randstad.

With the launch of the map, OMI offers a program that connects Rotterdam and The Hague, with city excursions and tours. OMI is also the venue for an exhibition where all the realised projects are displayed on large-format photographs and a ‘carpet’ shows 25 fictitious projects. A special evening program of film screenings and presentations offers an insight into the work of OMA.

Order this great calendar and support MIMOA Author: Mieke, Posted: November 25th, 2015 Filed under: MIMOA Members, news

architectuurkalender2016 cover-cut
Every year Dutch architectural photograper Dirk Verwoerd creates a beautiful architecture calendar. And this year's edition (2016) Dirk decided to donate 50% of the proceeds to MIMOA!

The calendar includes wonderful photos of inspiring projects in The Netherlands, Belgium, Denmark, France, Switzerland and Spain. It is printed with attention, in a modest format and delivered in a specially designed box (which also serves as a stand). A nice gift for the enthusiast! And nice to know: it's also possible to print your company logo on the cover.

The calendar can be ordered online for just € 14,90 (incl. VAT) here >>
(the website and order form is in Dutch, so if you need any help, please let us know!)

On behalf of the MIMOA team thanks to Dirk for the support and thank you for ordering!

Last chance to visit the Milan EXPO Author: Benjo, Posted: September 30th, 2015 Filed under: events, MIMOA guides

Italy-3165-625
photo by Dirk Verwoerd: Italy pavilion

In about a month, the World Expo in Milan will come to an end. If you haven’t visited the Expo Milano yet, now is the time to grab your bags and fly to Milan!
As a web editor of MIMOA I recently published many of the pavilions that have been built for the Expo 2015: with special thanks to one of our contributors Nazar for uploading all the information on the pavilions and to the Dutch photographer Dirk Verwoerd for adding all impressive photos.
Then suddenly I was asked to join a weekend trip to Milan with the Expo 2015 as the highlight of the visit. I didn’t exactly know what to expect. I knew the Dutch pavilion of the Expo 2000 in Hanover (MVRDV), the Atomium in Brussels (Expo 1958) and of course, the Eiffel Tower in Paris (Expo 1889). But what are these world exhibitions for? Why would 20 million people visit an area of 1,1 square kilometres to visit a temporary exhibition? It was about time to go there and explore the phenomenon!

Our trip consisted of an evening and a full day at the Expo, as well as one full day in the city, which was a perfect combination. The evening tickets are way cheaper than the day tickets and the worse crowds are gone at night. Coming from the Metro station, you need to walk through a long walkway before you reach the entrance of the Expo. Immediately, I was amazed by the immense scale of the Expo. The first pavilions encountered at the entrance were the main pavilions “Expo Centre” and “Pavilion Zero”, which tower above the Expo, resembling hills or thatched baskets. This was going to be a night to remember.
