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.

12.500 MIMOA members and counting…

Author: Mieke, Posted: March 28th, 2011

12792 members

We’re proud to let you know we’ve reached another milestone: since last month MIMOA counts over 12.500 registered members.

We would like to thank you all for being part of our community. Thank you for sharing your feedback, compliments and comments, for using MIMOA and for contributing all those beautiful, interesting and unexpected treasures in architecture. We appreciate it very much and strive to let MIMOA expand and improve even more in the future. We won’t be able to do so without your help, support and contributions. So keep up the good work!

Some facts & figures

Where do you all come from?
According to Google Analytics the last half year MIMOA generated an average of about 110.000 visits per month coming from 205 different countries/territories. And this is the top10:

statistics GA top countries

In August of 2010 we reached 10.000 MIMOA members. This means in exactly 7 months our community increased with 2.500 fans. A quick sum tells us we’re welcoming an average of about 360 new members each month. An increase of 50 per month with the half year before.

Where do our members come from?
These are the countries, where at least 100 MIMOA members live:

1 - Netherlands 1550   14 - Turkey 227
2 - United States 1214   15 - Switzerland 174
3 - Italy 1036   16 - Mexico 157
4 - Spain 1005   17 - Argentina 152
5 - United Kingdom 738   18 - Czech Republic 151
6 - Portugal 540   19 - Denmark 143
7 - Brazil 499   20 - Canada 140
8 - France 364   21 - India 137
9 - Germany 350   22 - Ireland 124
10 - Poland 336   23 - Greece 120
11 - Belgium 236   24 - Russia 120
12 - China 235   25 - Romania 108
13 - Australia 230   26 - Sweden 100

 

The Netherlands is still leading this list, but the US, Italy, and Spain are getting closer and closer. In fact the amount of US members has increased with 146% compared to the list of last August! Great to see also that more and more members are originated in countries from outside Europe as well.
Fact is that MIMOA members are spread all over the world, in 164 countries to be exact. 16 more than we listed in last August.

Who are you?
In  April of 2010 we introduced the new extended form on Mi Profile, because we want to know a little more about our audience – for statistical and usability purposes only! Up until now, almost 3.300 members have filled in their profile completely and these are some interesting conclusions:

The MIMOA community consists mostly of men:
60% is male
Our community is young (and getting younger!):
58% is between 18 and 30 years, no less than 74% is younger than 35 years
MIMOA is very popular among our colleagues:
73% is professional architect (48%) or architecture student (25%)
The other 27% consists of (other) students (6%); creative professionals (5%); photographer (3%); cultural traveller (3%); building professional (2%);  consultant (2%); real estate developer (1%) and other (5%).
Compared to the stats of August 2010, we seem to gain some ground under the architecture lovers, not being necessarily architects.

Complete your own profile now!
We understand that these figures may not correspond to the actual character profile of our community, since we collected the information of just 12% of our community so far. Therefore we would like to ask you all kindly to complete your own profile by filling in these data on your profile page. Read more on the extended profile form here.
Just login, go to ‘Mi Profile’ under ‘Mi pages’ in the menu on top and make it complete. We would appreciate it very much!

What about the active contributors?
Of course not all 12.500 members are actively contributing to MIMOA and uploading new projects. But without them MIMOA wouldn’t have grown this much and this fast. So a special thank to all members who are an active contributor. Right now we count 835 active users, you can see them all here, about 7% of the total sum, a respectable score.
Together they’ve uploaded almost 4.200 complete projects.

And this is the top 10 of most active contributors:

1 - Piotr Krajewski 213
2 - David Baugh 200
3 - Ryan Taube 127
4 - Bjorn Utpott 52
5 - Roderick Trompert 46
6   Dirk Verwoerd 44
7 - Joao Sousa 44
8 - Jeroen Meijer 41
9   Adrian Ewig 37
10 - Jose Garcia 36

 

Piotr, David and Ryan are, just like 7 months ago forming the top3. New in this top10 are Dirk Verwoerd and Adrian Ewig, very well done guys! It may be time for us to think of a way to thank and reward these dedicated contributors once in a while… We’re very thankful of all the great projects you upload and we would certainly like to motivate you all… Any ideas? Just let us know!

Do you also want to feature in this top10?

Let’s see how quick we can tap at the 15.000!

Hamburg architecture trip: a retrospective

Author: Naomi, Posted: November 28th, 2010

This November MIMOA organised a 4 day architecture trip to Hamburg, together with the The Royal Institute of Dutch Architects (BNA). Here’s a short rapport illustrated with some photos.

For all attendees: add and share your photos of the day to the MIMOA Flickr Pool. Add this tag: hamburgmimoa, and they’ll be included in this slide-show too.

Hamburg attracts a great deal of international interest with it’s large urban developments, and several special architectural projects. In the exhibition space of the Stadtmodell in the city centre, the municipality offers a complete overview of what the 20th century has produced and will develop in terms of modern architecture. After seeing the model, we started with an inner city introduction to get ourselves orientated; a walking-tour by A-tours.

The second day we visited the beautiful and very interesting Speicherstadt. The area was explained by Lydia Struck from the Speicherstadtmuseum, where we warmed ourselves on some tea and coffee which were traditionally stored in the warehouses. Highlight of our visit was the construction site of the Elbphilharmonie. The roof was partly on, the glass panelling now almost all clad to the façade. We marvelled at the big and grand guestures of the inner spaces. Sven Ove Cordsen of Hamburg based coido architects introduced us into the Bavaria quarter in St. Pauli, and we finished the day at the office of Stephen Williams. They showed us a part of the future of Hamburg due to be completed in 2017; the Stadthöfe. Located right in the city centre, it is an undiscovered gem and features a series of courtyards unknown to the general public. The courtyards have been linked to include retail, loft offices and 15,000 sq. meters of apartments.

The third day started off with a tour through the HafenCity, followed by a warm and welcoming lunch at the AIT architecture salon. In the afternoon Michael Braungart introduced us to the C2C design method at the EPEA headquarters. All this new information had to be digested during a diner that evening.

The last and not least cold day, was reserved for a bicycle tour through the IBA-area, south of the city: the Elbe islands. This is where IBA Hamburg is developing solutions for the future of the metropolis. A-tours showed us the current urban community, the future town planning and the environmental issues Hamburg is focussing on the coming years.

About Mark Magazine
Architecture is the mother of all arts. In the past, however, most architects were secluded in ivory towers, whereas today’s designers are in the thick of society as never before. Architects have become pop stars, complete with fan clubs. They design retail spaces for big-name brands and create the furniture that surrounds us. Architecture has amassed a wide audience that gets its daily fix of design news from newspaper reports and TV programmes. And architecture blogs have put the discipline smack in the middle of the public domain that we know as the internet. Mark magazine sees itself as a platform for the practice and perception of architecture at the dawn of the third millennium.
