Carlo Viscione’s 1930s east London home displays plenty of clues about its previous lives. There’s a strip of floor tiling from when it housed a school canteen; a hand-painted sign saying “pallets” from its days as an art department; two layers of double glazing from when it was a recording studio used by local boys East 17; and scribbles left by former residents from when it was a squat in the early 2000s.
Down a side street in the south London neighbourhood of Brixton, Squire & Partners has reimagined a neglected Edwardian department store as a utopian hub – not just for their 220 staff, but for the locals too. Called The Department Store, the firm’s new home boasts many components of any well-considered modern-day workplace: three floors of open-plan offices and meeting rooms, a model shop in a street-facing retail space, and cycle racks and showers in abundance.
In Southampton’s city centre, ACME has transformed a car park into WestQuay Watermark, a ship-like multiplex structure housing restaurants and surrounded by new public spaceEven on a fine summer’s day, Southampton city centre can make the heart sink. WestQuay, BDP’s 17-year-old, £185m aquamarine-glass shopping centre looms unappealingly over the pedestrianised high street, Above Bar Street, where the homeless slump in doorways of empty shops.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
