patterns & practices - Application Architecture Guide 2.0

"This guide provides design-level guidance for the architecture and design of applications built on the .NET Framework. It focuses on the most common types of applications, partitioning application functionality into layers, components, and services, and walks through their key design characteristics.This guide is a collaborative effort between patterns & practices, product teams, and industry experts."

It's a useful guide, but use with caution. At times the authors confuse the perspective. For example a "tier" is used interchangeably with a "layer." This is not correct since a tier is usually defined to exist in a run time perspective and a layer in a static perspective. All in all a very useful composition.
