Architecture guide – Mei architects and planners Author: Mieke, Posted: October 9th, 2014 Filed under: MIMOA guides, news

mei featured guide - bookletThis new MIMOA guide features the work of the Dutch architecture firm Mei architects and planners. It includes 16 of the best works of Mei in The Netherlands, mostly located in their hometown Rotterdam and varying from a small and detailed bridge between two monuments, to the famous Schiecentrale and a sneak preview of the design of one of the largest re-use projects in the Netherlands in the coming years. The work of Mei is introduced by a preface written by the Dutch architecture critic Piet Vollaard.
"If the architecture of Mei could be summed up in one slogan, then it would be something like: no-nonsense modernist redevelopment architecture."

The featured guide – Mei architects and planners is the first guide of a series of architect firms. Mei is the first office added to the MIMOA gallery of great architects.
