  • "The MIMOA app is a must have for anyone interested in architecture and travel. With an impressive database of thousands of projects throughout the world, it provides instant information on your architectural surroundings. The beauty of it is that since it is linked to the website, new projects are continually being added daily, making the app even more robust. I wish I had this 10 years ago, when I was student travelling through Europe! :)"
