The Creative Class: 4 Manhattan Tech and Media Offices

Manhattan tech and media offices pulse with the energy of the city.

1. Firm: M Moser Associates
Project: LinkedIn
Location: Midtown
Standout: What looks like a collage of original graffiti tags is actually vinyl wall covering, but the doodles on whiteboard, around the corner, are really by staffers.

2. Firm: TPG Architecture
Project: Arnold Worldwide
Location: TriBeCa
Standout: Orange bike reflectors, arranged as signage, introduce the saturated colors enlivening the raw concrete of a printing plant turned advertising agency.

3. Firm: Environetics
Project: HarperCollins Publishers
Location: Financial district
Standout: Upholstered in a Paul Smith stripe, Patrick Jouin sectionals pop in contrast with the painted steel and fumed, oiled oak at this five-level headquarters.

4. Firm: M Moser Associates
Project: WPP
Location: Midtown
Standout: The kitsch of faux hunting trophies and a mini Statue of Liberty balances abstract elements, such as angled ceiling channels, at an office shared by advertising and PR agencies.
