Architecture mastery is more than professional expertise in modern software engineering methods and techniques. It is mainly in how architects approach design. Particularly, the "things between things" require the architect's full attention: domain concepts hidden between the lines of code; interactions and interfaces residing between components; and even choices between design options. This is the architect's territory, and successful architecture uncovers the things "in-between" as early as possible, make them explicit, and decide about them!
