The MiMo was recognized as a regional style of architecture just recently but it was a home style that was developed in South Florida during the post-war era. At first, it was considered a response to the International Style.
The Mimo architecture is greatly noticeable in most hotels, condos and resorts that were built right after the Great Depression.
MiMO Historic District is also known as MiMo on BiBo for Miami Modern on Biscayne Boulevard. Biscayne Boulevard was constructed as a result of a burgeoning economy of Miami. Its main purpose was to create an avenue that would connect Downtown Miami to the neighborhood of Miami Shores.
It was in 1927 when the boulevard was opened to automobile traffic. The boulevard, at this time, extended north to NE 55th Street where it will connect with US-1.
