An ode to the sartorial and intellectual prowess of Eva Franch Gilabert, the Catalan-born architect, philosopher, and director of Storefront for Art & Architecture in NYC.
We <3 you bigtime.

Who on earth would photograph this woman in black-and-white?…
Pictured at Storefront for Art & Architecture membership dinner.
That’s much better, thanks.
[Note that only two other architects dare to sneak color into their sartorial suits-of-armor for the evening, both in Franch-approved blue.]
This photo: NEEDS MORE NEON. +10 for the United Shoes, though, worn by lady architects partout in New York.
They know a (neon) golden photo op when they see one. L-R: Eva Franch, Peter Guggenheimer, Monty Freeman, Charles Renfro, and Sarah Herda.
Who, me? Breezily standing stripèd in a breezeway?
For stripes in context, see here. Gràcies.
Star of the show at this year’s Festival of Ideas for the New City. It was a doozy from start to finish, from facade projections on the New Museum to a 50-foot-model of Manhattan to a Bucky Fuller-approved blow-up dome.
Surveying her domain, with top notes of garnet and top knot of glossy black.
I see your architect glasses and raise you green polka dots and a bun held up by a chopstick.
After a brief hiatus, we’re back! Back with a 3D geometric color-blocked necklace, as shown with supporting guests Snarkitecture inside the foamiest exhibition Storefront has ever seen.

Eva Franch with Florian Idenburg & Jing Liu of SO-IL (MoMA and P.S.1’s Young Architects Program winner for 2010).
Naturally, Storefront’s director is looking so ill.
