The Gaudí Project
The ambition of the Gaudí project is to make the art and emerging methodology
of System architecture more accessible and
to transfer this know how and skills to a new generation of system architects.
The results can be found via
The experience and information is consolidated in small chunks,
which are published as early as possible to generate feedback.
The information is published on internet, where relevant as article,
and is used as teaching material in courses.
All these small chunks are slowly integrated in a more consistent overall collections,
which should become available on paper as well as electronically
The Gaudí project is based on many years of Philips working experience.
Philips Research funded and supported the project for many years.
The project has gradually moved to the Embedded Systems Institute.
Nowadays, the core is at Buskerud and Vestfold University College (HBV).
The work on this project is enabled by many people by giving feedback,
suggestions, support and so on. The list below is attempt to mention
the people who helped me, although I might have forgotten someone:
Henk Obbink, Jürgen Müller, Jan Statius Muller, Angelo Hulshout, Auke Jilderda,
Rik Willems, Nico Schellingerhout, Jaap van der Heijden, Adriaan van den Brand

approach, as advocated here for system architecting,
although some people argue that Barcelona's cathedral is somewhat too incremental.
