Design vs. Architecture

Some time ago I came across a discussion posted in a LinkedIN Enterprise Architecture group; it was about how (if) design is different from architecture. The question kept bugging me for a while - I felt that there is difference but could not quite formulate my thought. Until today, that is 🙂

The break trough came while reading Software Systems Architecture by Nick Rozanski and Eoin Woods

Design refers to functional composition of the system, while architecture is also concerned with behavioral aspects of it. Therefore, architecture includes the design component, and extends it by adding quality attributes.
