Abstract
The idea that we can separate application content from ar- chitectural form, or style, is a mainstay of modern software engineering. Architectural styles have themselves been a subject of intensive study. The problem is that we do not yet have an adequate account of the mappings that combine choices of application description independent of style, and of architectural style independent of application, to produce style-specific, application-specific architectural descriptions. An account of such mappings would deepen our understand- ing of architecture and provide a foundation for technologies for manipulating architecture as an independent variable. We contribute a validated early model of this kind.
