University of Cincinnati Design, Architecture, Art & Planning Showcase

At the end of every academic year, the University of Cincinnati's world renown School of Design, Architecture, Art & Planning (also known as DAAP) showcases the capstone work of all its graduating seniors in a program that is free and open to the public, called 'DAAPworks'. I have attended the event just about every year from the time I was a high schooler, through my own tenure as a DAAP student (here is my capstone/thesis project from DAAPworks 2010), and now as a proud alumn of the the DAAP School of Architecture. It is a great way as a professional to get a feel as to where the industry might be headed in future years, and how that might relate back to the Starter Home 2.0 Project.
One of the projects that caught my eye this year was the industrial design project for the 'uncool' water heater and app shown in the image below.
