MIMOA save the dateSave the date: 31 October 2009

We're organising an exclusive MIMOA city tour and international rendezvous in Rotterdam on Saturday 31 of October. This autumn Rotterdam has the perfect right to proclaim itself
ëCity of Architectureí with the International Architecture Biennale Rotterdam (IABR) kicking off at the 24th of September and the Architecture Film Festival Rotterdam (AFFR) taking place in the final weekend of October. The perfect motive for us to celebrate our annual event, the Mi event 2009, in Hollandís most modern city. With the purpose to intensify the international architectural appreciation of Rotterdam. Not to forget: MIMOA turns 2 this autumn. Reason enough to throw a great party!

Save the date, you're all invited!
