From NIB to MIMOA: user generated ARCHives get European

"NIB starts an international survey in order to promote the best emerging architects around the world. is the first interactive architecture, landscape and design network that since 2000 allows real-time self-publication of prizes, competitions, projects, ideas and texts. Unlike traditional media, participation, debate and freedom of expression are strongly encouraged and potentially unlimited. Self-publication, without any editorial interference, requires only a few seconds and it is available to all users for free".

"For European cities the Architectural Energy has become the foremost monitor for cultural and economic prosperity. Therefore bring this Modern Architecture closer. Your Modern Architecture, assembled, compiled and completed, synoptic, swift and always up-to-date. Architecture to be added, searched, visited and re-viewed, MY Modern Architecture: MIMOA".
Recently launched MIMOA [still in Beta Version] is for now a sort of little Phaidon Architecture Atlas for Europe: the big difference is that user decides which projects get in and which stay out. And eventually it will get much bigger than a Phaidon Atlas! It also might include projects by less famous architects in the near future.
It's worth a shot!
