What are the top five properties that make a software design elegant? That's a tough question that is not easy to answer. In this column we explore the first three of five properties leading architects have found useful: economy, visibility, spacing, symmetry, and emergence. All five properties help with a lean and expressive modularization of architecture, avoid unnecessary design clutter, and support a clear and meaningful separation of concerns where each distinct concept is clearly identifiable and tangible. All together the properties provide a value system that can broadly guide architects' design decisions
