dc.description This paper questioned the widespread and assumed use of building construction as a metaphor for software construction. It argues that the use of architect-designed, builder-constructed house construction as a source of lessons for software development is inappropriate for exploring the structure, processes and roles in systems development. It explores the metaphors of film production and jazz improvisation as richer metaphors. The article provides the basis for a continuing debate about approaches to system development. It sparked further discussion in the literature and was the 8th most downloaded article from that journal in its year of publication. en
