Agreed with @NathanCooper. What methodology are you supposed to be doing? Were you expert enough in your chosen methodology to customise it?

comment DTO - service layer - statelessness best practices interfering with each other
Not sure this is really answerable. You've already made a number of assertions based on the interpreting guidelines as rules.

@Giorgio actually there are empirical studies say contrary to this. Big Upfront Design often results in incorrect or inadequate architectures and one only needs to look at any government contract to see examples of this failure. Many open source projects often have no explicit architect or upfront design and yet will have good architectures.

@user949300 "Agile" as in the manifesto says very little about architecture. What exact methods are you drawing this conclusion on? XP would encourage you to refactor mercilessly. Are you in favour of BUFD?

@Giorgio you make the assertion that it is not feasible not to have an architect, but there are plenty of examples of large scale projects where that is not true.

Agile is not about projects but instead developing products. So long terms projects dont really exist in Agile. Each piece of development should be self contained.
