This paper presents a framework for visualization and evaluation of software architectural styles. There has been significant research made to improve the software architecture visualization and evaluation. Most of the tools developed for this purpose don't satisfy all the framework's elements. Hence the paper presents a framework that builds modules from requirements, measure modularity, visualizes architecture and evaluates the visualized architecture satisfying all elements. Software design is the process of applying various techniques and principles for the purpose of defining a system in sufficient detail to permit its physical realization. Visualization makes people to understand information presented in a shorter time or in a great depth.
