Almost everyone in software development appears to have their own opinion of architecture. Mine has been evolving slowly over the years and I'm increasingly convinced that we have outlived the building architecture analogy and something constructively new is required. Software Architects aren’t yet an endangered species but perhaps they should. However, before we leave the land of architecture behind altogether there is still an astonishing wealth of ideas in the filed of the physical architecture that we would benefit from adopting beyond just the facade.

In this lightning talk I will share some specific ideas of concepts taught in architecture school and practiced in the design studios around the world that should be adopted into our thinking about systems, design and solutions.
