Eva Franch, the "Midwife"
30. May 2018
A new short film from NOWNESS directed by Adinah Dancyger speaks with Catalan architect, educator, and curator Eva Franch i Gilabert and follows her around the streets of New York City as she expounds on the multifaceted roles of architecture and describes herself as a "midwife" nurturing the ideas of those around her.
From 2010 until this year, Eva Franch served as Chief Curator and Executive Director of Storefront for Art and Architecture. She is leaving to take over as Director of the Architecture Association in London; she was selected in March and will be the school's first female director. Although the film does not mention her new role, it captures the ideas that haven driven Franch in her position at Storefront and will no doubt continue at the AA School.
