Who is MIMOA

MIMOA is a user-generated database, an interactive architecture guide, open for everyone to contribute: publish your projects, posts comments and ratings, define your personal favorites and keep track of the projects you’ve visited. MIMOA is you!


MIMOA was born out of personal frustration. Never to be able to find the right addresses of the most recent Modern Architecture when you set out to choose and prepare a city-trip; hours of aimlessly flipping through hundreds of dusty architecture magazines that do not even include addresses in their glossy stories; inconsistent websites; no comprehensive, easy to compare, all in one glance overview of the latest developments in a certain city…
Just imagine the struggle non-architects must have.

So, in July 2006 we decided to make all this ourselves. In January 2007 we had the first page online. In September 2007 MIMOA 1.0 is launched.




Meet Mieke

Mieke BarcaThe first to make the effort in forming MIMOA was Mieke. Her obsession with difficult-to-trace muddy building sites and her frustration in never finding the right address on the night before the trip, made the perfect motive to start a ‘dot-eu-company’. Even though she made a huge risk in starting something which is not her largest personal expertise, she is the one who oversees all major steps and manages overall business. Mieke is a real entrepreneur. Her architectural nose is set in to improve and search for the best quality products, the best way to find it, or the best people to do it with. Together with her never ending enthusiasm and her irresistible urge for taking chances, she achieves every self-set goal. She is the one who remembers you to enjoy your achievements and loves to celebrate the moment with family and friends. And perhaps the best possible way for Mieke to enjoy, is in the Spanish sun.

Meet Naomi

Naomi OxfordLike a true architect she's creative, critical, a bit stubborn but credible, and definitely addicted to traveling around the world. She cherishes a special love for Spain, the Spanish people, language and not at least the fingerfood! Bacalao con pimiento served with fresh sidra is certainly the perfect combination you can please her with anytime. Rarely you will see her without a scratch book and/or camera, excessively greedy for the unexpected moment, original experience or extraordinary detail. In no way is she stingily, but she's not unfrequently convinced she can create all kinds of things herself, better than buying it. If she'll take the time to do so, that's the question, but that will not undermine her creative and vivid mind. She's dedicated to her ambitions, knows what she wants and how she wishes it. She reflects this on everybody and everything around her: MIMOA can only profit by all this!
