Design of software architecture is seen as abstraction over the software domain, and describing architecture is considered to be a modeling process. A general view of a modeling process is presented and illustrated in the context of application domain modeling and of software domain modeling. The implications of this perspective are investigated in order to capture objectives and concrete forms of architectural descriptions. The consequences of this perspective on architecture are characterized.
