Agile development and software architecture are not the enemies any more they seemed to be some years ago. It is agreed that agile development needs some form of architecting, too. However, how this architecting should look like is widely unclear. In this paper, we further characterize the relationship of agile development and architecting. We present our key idea to distill practically applicable and accessible architecture best practices from existing architecture approaches and tailor them for agile development. We describe the identification and template-based documentation of architecting best practices and present an example, which were already successfully applied in industry. Additionally, we share experiences we made in industrial development projects regarding the combination of architecting and agile development.
