Day runs a 6-1/2-minute mile through the rolling hills of the Palisades in New Jersey. "When I run, I like to think and look around at the architecture. Instead of concentrating on pain, I look at homes and take mental notes."
McMansions popping up in upscale neighborhoods waste space and energy, and Day sees a backlash coming. "I've done drawings on how to create living spaces that get the most out of space as opposed to grand, empty homes that feel cold."
Day doesn't shy away from being associated with the taboo term. "I don't run from it. I think it's misinterpreted sometimes, but the reality is that the best way to deal with it is head on, as opposed to wishing it would go away."
