Each June, the Dutch island of Terschelling transforms into a stage for music, performance, and art during the Oerol Festival. This year, one of its pop-up venues is as incredible as the performances it contains. Comprising two enormous plastic bubbles connected by ring-like hallway, the structure is completely devoid of interior supports—they’re mere plastic shells filled with air. The effect is at once futuristic, playful, and marvelous.
Slovenia firm OFIS Arhitekti has designed everything from a tiny climber refuge to Belarus’ pythonesque soccer stadium. Their latest project—a sleek three-story addition to a 1930s home—carries many of the firm’s hallmarks, from its black-paneled exterior to an open interior filled with pale blonde wood. The the three stacked “shoeboxes” of the extension were inspired by the proportions of the original home, built in 1934 by architect Emil Navinsek for his sisters.
Known for their marvelous Brutalist London paper model kit, the designers at Zupagrafika are at it again. Their latest creation is an homage to Constructivism—the socially-oriented artistic and architectural philosophy championed by Vladimir Tatlin and other artists in Russia in the early 20th century. The new paper kit includes four die-cut “cardboard comrades”—playful interpretations of iconic constructivist buildings like the Melnikov House, Kirov Town Hall, and Nikolaev`s House.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
