MIMOA iPhone appUpdate on MIMOA Mobile: iPhone app

As you know, we're constantly working on new features and improvements on the website of MIMOA. Some months ago we started to create an iPhone application for MIMOA. This iPhone app will show all nearby architectural projects, and offers extra information on opening hours, how to get there, and of course photos and descriptions. MIMOA travels with you!
Sounds great, right?

Many of you have been asking us by mail: what's the status? So, here is an update ·nd a request:

With the highly consistent and structured content of MIMOA, we can built this product fast and reasonably easy. The interface-design is done, graphics and technical development are covered. We've finished a demo and are now looking for a partner to help us conceive it. We are looking for a company or institution that wants to be our 'launching sponsor'. In return for exclusive advertising space, the corresponding buzz on the MIMOA-website, and not to forget eternal fame and acknowledgement from the architecture community...

If you know anyone working with a company or brand, that fits this description, and might be interested to sponsor the MIMOA iPhone app, please let us know, and help us get in contact.

If you are a keen iPhone user, we can send you a link to download the demo to get a good idea of what this product can do for the promotion of the sponsor.

For more information (demo download, design, estimated costs, etc), contact us by email. Any general feedback, ideas, support, or further questions? You can place a comment.

We would love to hear from you.
Naomi & Mieke

IABRSee you in Rotterdam this September

It might be a bit early, but we thought weíd just let you know: In September 2009 MIMOA will celebrate itís birthday (weíll be two years old, on the 21th of September to be precise). And as our launch party in 2007 was at Arcam in Amsterdam, we decided to join forces with Rotterdam this year.

In September, the 4th International Architecture Biennale Rotterdam (IABR) will start. We will try to find a venue and date that conveniently coincides with the programm of the IABR. In case you were thinking of coming to the Netherlands, this might be a fresh incentive to start plan your trip. Meet MIMOA and more international members at our birthday party! More info soon!
