The Iasa Structure Canvas Approach provides a set of tools for the practicing architecture team. It includes over 75 canvases, cards, worksheets and documents all linked together but usable separately. Some of these are invented elsewhere such as the business model canvas, but the ITABoK team and Iasa have connected them in such a way that they can drive traceability, solve common architecture challenges (like describing design benefits and tradeoffs), all while creating the least documentation and providing the most valuable of all, stakeholder buy-in and understanding. Combined with our stakeholder driven architecture and architecture patterns library, it provides the most robust toolset ever created for a working architecture practice, from business to solution to enterprise.

Note: this library is under construction. There will be one to two new canvases added daily as we roll out the ITABoK over this summer.

We are also looking for worked examples to include; please let us know (send email to if you have a canvas example that can be shared.
