The aesthetic strikes a balance between rough-and-tumble and refined. In the lobby, the security desk is construction-grade plywood, a material that has perhaps never looked quite so good as it does here. In fact, Burns and Gesualdi rejected sample after sample before finding one with the figuration they were after. Then they detailed it by adding blackened-steel trim with a slender reveal, as if this were a rare wood.
It may not end up with nine lives. But it’s going to have at least four. The first was as a shipyard, established along the Hackensack River. By World War II, this was the U.S. Navy’s preferred place to build vessels. After purchasing it in the 1960’s, the Neu family started to dismantle ships there, salvaging the materials to sell. It was during the next phase, as a distribution center, that Hurricane Sandy inundated the buildings, prompting Wendy Neu to add “developer” to her resume.
It may seem odd to think of universities as developers. But New York State’s two most prestigious institutions of higher education, Columbia and Cornell Universities, are in expansionist mode. Columbia, which prides itself on its McKim, Mead & White main campus in Morningside Heights, is going in a very different stylistic direction on 17 acres in nearby Manhattanville. Renzo Piano Building Workshop, the firm of Pritzker Architecture Prize winner Renzo Piano, is designing four buildings.
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".
