Architecture by Intent

John McDowall points out the need for software architects to concentrate on Architecture by intent (emphasis added) :

We are not considering architecture by intent, rather we are developing architecture by accidental consequences.
Architecture by intent is the process of deciding what you wish to expose to users and how you want to expose it. Deciding to throw in more features and not considering the impact is not an intent - it is unintended consequences.
