MiMo on BiBo

Vagabond Motel Architectural Detail, 7301 Biscayne Blvd, Miami, Florida

Miami Modernist Architecture or better known as MiMo, is a style of architecture from the 1950s and 1960s that originated in Miami, Florida as a resort vernacular unique to Miami and Miami Beach… Today, the area along Biscayne Boulevard is the designated MiMo Biscayne Boulevard Historic District or also known as “MiMo on BiBo”, for “Miami Modern on Biscayne Boulevard”. MiMo Historic District runs roughly from 50th Street to 77th Street along Biscayne Boulevard.

The recently restored Vagabond Motel is a classic example of the MiMo style. Featured in this photo of the office entrance are the acute angles and square cut-outs in a simple flagstone screen block, and, of course, the aluminum space-age details above the window.
