Actual Architecture Company is an internationally recognized architecture and design firm based in Omaha, Nebraska, but operating around the world with expansive vision. After 15 years practicing as a founding principal of Min | Day (San Francisco & Omaha), Jeffrey L. Day, AIA reorganized the Omaha office as Actual Architecture Co. The firm draws on backgrounds in art, landscape, and architecture to provide informed, highly considered design for a wide range of clients, sites, and projects – from individuals to art institutions, urban to rural settings, and furniture to large buildings. Jeff is Professor of Architecture and Landscape Architecture and former Architecture Program Director at the University of Nebraska where he runs FACT, a collaborative design\build lab that offers students a forum for engaging the complex relationships between thinking (conceiving, designing, theorizing) and making. FACT is a “do-tank”, a lab in which ideas and new knowledge are developed though action as well as thought. By maximizing the potential of both academic and professional practices, Actual Architecture Co. integrates design-research, speculative design practice, and a commitment to building architecture that enhances culture and community.

Actual Architecture Co. (as Min | Day Omaha) has garnered numerous awards including the prestigious Architectural League of New York’s 2016 Emerging Voices, Architectural Record’s 2009 Design Vanguard, 2007 AIA California Council’s Emerging Talent award, New Practices San Francisco 2009, Residential Architect’s 2010 Rising Star, 59 national, regional, and state AIA design awards, 9 ACSA and 3 IDEC design awards, and many publication awards.
