Fred Bernstein has degrees in architecture (from Princeton University) and law (from NYU) and writes about both subjects. Born on Long Island, he lives in New York City and has two young sons, Aaron and Jacob.
This is the second in a weekly series of AD PRO profiles aimed at calling attention to the important contributions of immigrants to the fields of architecture and design. Architect, urban planner, and designer Denise Scott Brown is a partner in the Philadelphia firm Venturi, Scott Brown and Associates and a coauthor of the seminal treatise Learning From Las Vegas .
Most architecture students dream of getting projects built—eventually. Daniel Toole just had an elaborate project built, to much fanfare, while still in architecture school. In fact, he says, "I used my design fees to help pay part of my tuition." The project is a series of arches that transform an alley in Miami’s Design District into an inviting and intriguing cloister. Made of concrete molded against wooden formwork, the arches have a texture that rewards close inspection.
In 2014, when she became The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s first curator of architecture and design, Beatrice Galilee had an inspiration: Why not invite more than a dozen architects and designers to speak at the museum on the same day—as a way of summing up a year’s worth of architectural achievements.
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".
