From the futuristic Confluence Park and the new Samba adidas campaign to luxurious velvet stools and ottomans from @home’s latest collection, these are the VISI team’s top picks of the week.

1. Confluence Park

“Architecture firm Lake Flato, design studio Matsys and landscape architect Rialto Studio are behind the design of this beautiful park in San Antonio, Texas,” says Online Editor Lindi Brownell Meiring. “The main pavilion is made up of 22 concrete ‘petals’ that are designed to funnel rainwater to a catchment system that provides the park with water.”
