2012 Honda Integra Motorcycle

Honda presents the 2012 Integra, which takes its name from the fact it integrates the ease of use of a scooter with the dynamic performance of a motorcycle. It has a feet-forward riding position, protection from the elements, internal storage, and the option of an automatic transmission in the shape of the second generation of Honda’s innovative Dual Clutch Transmission; at the same time it offers stability and handling not found on a scooter. The result is a unique and desirable modern machine, conceived to deliver a totally engaging riding experience while benefiting from the environmental and safety technologies customers expect of a 21st century vehicle. At the heart of this new machine is a purpose-built engine and transmission package. The liquid-cooled, in-line 2-cylinder 670cm3 engine is a lightweight and compact unit positioned to give a low center of gravity. It offers strong torque at low to medium engine rpm, where riders spend the vast majority of their riding time, together with a very usable power delivery, low exhaust gas emissions and superb fuel efficiency. Some key features are offered below with further information available here.

Dynamic Performance – Mounting the engine and advanced transmission in a rigid steel diamond frame, the Integra offers the stability and handling performance of a conventional motorcycle. High-specification suspension, CBS and ABS, large-diameter 17″ wheels and wide 120/70 front and 160/60 rear wheels and tyres further enhance the riding experience.

All-New Engine – An all-new 670cm3 in-line two cylinder unit developed to offer superb fuel efficiency (27.9km/l) together with strong performance particularly at low and medium engine rpm, the engine is key to the Integra’s fun riding experience and all-round versatility.

Advanced Transmission – The Integra’s Dual Clutch transmission uses two clutches to deliver fast and smooth gearshifts in a choice of three modes. Manual (MT) allows the rider to shift gears using triggers mounted on the left handlebar, while automatic mode (AT) offers two settings: S for sporty riding and D for urban and highway use.

Stylish Practicality – The Integra is a bold and original styling statement, fusing new forms, slick surface treatments and strong lines. It offers a high level of wind protection and a relaxed, comfortable riding position.

How Much Does Your Building Weigh, Mr. Foster?

From directors Carlos Carcas and Norberto López Amado comes a documentary that paints a portrait of the day’s leading architects of the world, with its main focus on British architect Norman Foster. It gives a slightly biographical point of view, starting with Foster’s days as a local architect in Manchester, to his growth and eventual global practice. It discusses the criteria for good architecture, something Foster has seemingly been able to achieve time and time again. The cinematography is handled with such care as to enhance the grandiose feeling of some of Foster’s designs, and dissects why architecture has such a lasting and profound impact on our society and our culture. According to him, “Architecture to me is something that works in terms of all the senses,” and this film definitely aims to articulate those very tactile senses Foster aims to engage with his work.

Reebok: The Romantic Process of Jesse Boykins III

Reebok in association with singer-songwriter and producer Jesse Boykins III lets us into his world, delving into “The Romantic Process.” Watch and listen as the Chicago native speaks about his role as artist, his vision, and his musical process.

Now watch and listen as Jesse speaks more in detail of his creative and writing process, as well as his transition in moving from Miami to New York. His progression as an artist has expectantly been a gradual process, but with each passing tune, he warrants more and more widespread attention.

Villa Veth

Villa Veth is a modern, customized villa, a private residence for a family of four. It is situated on a large parcel of land by a forest near the idyllic town of Hattem in the eastern part of the Netherlands. The house itself and the mostly customized furnishings were designed by Liong Lie of the Rotterdam-based 123DV.

Although the structure from some angles resembles today’s favorite and by now highly overused form – long, narrow boxes situated at odd angles – the design of this villa manages to avoid that cliché by locating only one floor above ground. The result is a classic, modern residence that functions well for the family inhabiting it, yet looks like it could have existed since the 1950s. The ground floor and principal living area of the two-storey residence is divided into two. On one side are the master bedroom and two kids’ bedrooms -- all with separate bathrooms -- plus two small studios.

The other half, the south-facing side -- of the floor plan is taken up by an open-concept living area that includes the kitchen, dining and living spaces. One wall of the living area is constructed of frameless curved glass, enabling a seamless connection with the outdoors.

The total floor surface area of the residence is 475 square meters (about 5,113 square feet). 123DV is an architectural firm that specializes in modern villas and supervises the entire construction process.
