There is currently an enormous interest in the concept of software architecture, largely induced by the concept of architectural patterns first introduced by the architect Christopher Alexander (Alexander, 1979; Alexander et. al, 1977). We feel that some of the earlier work on software and system architectures has not benefited sufficiently from a deeper understanding of the complexity of the act of architecting in its home discipline: the built environment. This has lead to a confusion between fine-grain constructional mechanisms and techniques, and the overall, coarse-grain, software architectures that should in some way reflect original problem domains.
