Abstract

How we think of architecture shapes what we do as architects, and what we do shapes how we think of architecture. We will explore our conception of architecture in this dual sense, with an emphasis on visualization and visual expression of design (intention and reflection).

Winner of the 2017 Linda Northrop Software Architecture Award, given to an individual or team that has used software architecture to significantly improve practices, outcomes, or both in an organization or in the software-development community.
