The Swedish government has appointed Lena Rauolt as director of the Swedish Museum of Architecture. She is basically an artist in textile. She has worked with a number of different projects including exhibitions and she has a reputation of being a good leader and an active entrepreneur. She has been responsible for moving a small design archive from Kalmar, a medium country size town, to a small place called Puceberg and there establish fare better conditions and order for that archive.
Her knowledge of architecture is however quite limited. The appointment of her as director of the museum of architecture must be seen as a part of the governments plan to extend the museums responsibility to include also design. Some other candidates with good qualifications including fare better knowledge of architecture existed but were left at side by the government.
