In this paper we argue for the necessity of an architectural description of a framework. We then analyze why design patterns on their own are insufficient for such a description and propose that a variety of complementary forms of documentation are needed to address the requirements of an architectural description. We claim that traditional artifacts of domain analysis and object-oriented design can better capture the architecture of a framework by describing the design solutions in the problem context at a higher level of granularity than can design patterns.
