With Min|Day, Day won over 85 AIA awards, ACSA awards, and other honors, including the 2007 AIA California Council Emerging Talent award, the 2009 New Practices San Francisco award, California Home & Design’s Ten to Watch in 2009, Residential Architect’s 2010 Rising Star Award, Architectural Record Magazine’s 2009 Design Vanguard feature, and the 2016 Emerging Voices award from the Architectural League of New York. Recently, he has worked to expand the practice with the formation of mdMOD furniture.
