Summary form only given. In this article, the author describes the principles involved in the design of software architecture. The premise is that the design of software architecture is determined by the quality attributes requirements for a system. The quality attributes that we have focused on are: availability, modifiability, performance, security, and usability. The author discusses why quality attributes are important, how to specify quality attribute requirements in a common form, design primitives to support the achievement of each quality attribute and how these can be applied to the design and evaluation of software architectures
