An update of sorts on a previous post finding architecture I posted over a year ago now. MIMOA is a new website for finding good Architecture in Europe. A database like nextroom but with a social aspect with the ability to contribute, comment and print off projects when travelling. I have held off mentioning it until I had gone to Copenhagen so I could put it through its paces.
So what was it like then? I found it already covered Copenhagen pretty well, although copenhagenx is the best website for the Danish Capital (maybe for any city), still for its age it has an impressive directory of buildings already. I printed off all the pages on Copenhagen and found it really good at helping to filter the buildings and working out my route. It is linking up also with the magazine A10 so filling up the site with buildings should’nt be a problem.
A couple of issues I had were the current print page doesn’t work that well, with no map showing up and the right sidebar slipping, so a screen dump of the building you want to visit produces a better version which is a hassle. Other than that congratulations on a very nice site which I hope to use and contribute to over the coming years. Oh and here is my list of possible future features that could be added;
Expand to the rest of the world
pdf booklets and ability to plot routes
Ability to upload google sketch up models and videos, and last but maybe most importantly….
Georss feed & kml- how about a kml link like flickr so we can see these buildings on Goggle Earth? & with a georss feed I could be automatically updated if a new building is added in Finland or Copenhagen forinstance.
