MiMo in Miami: An International Conference on Mid-Century Modern Architecture
March 11-12, 2011
Join DOCOMOMO US and Dade Heritage Trust at the MiMo Conference . Miami Modern architecture, better known as MiMo, boomed after WWII, translating International Modernism into innovative designs with tropical exoticism, glamour and fun. The conference will discuss MiMo in an international context, with an emphasis on Miami's newest historic designations: the Miami Marine Stadium, the Miami Bacardi Building, the Morris Lapidus District, North Shore on Miami Beach and the MiMo on Biscayne Historic District.
DOCOMOMO US chapter president Theodore Prudon will deliver the keynote speech on Friday morning, March 11 at 9:00am EST at the Eden Roc Hotel in Miami Beach. Tours, presentations, and other special events are planned for both days.
