2. Atlas Obscura delves into America’s obsession with the log flume ride, based on an industrial transportation necessity, and now ubiquitous in amusement parks everywhere.

3. Bisnow profiles Splunk’s San Francisco headquarters, where seven floors are each made distinct by a San Francisco theme from Victorian to Beatnik.

4. Architect Magazine showcases Thomas Heatherwick’s recreational woven staircase coming to Hudson Yards, Manhattan, in 2018.
