The computer architecture is the conceptual design and basic operational structure of a computer system. It is a blueprint and practical description of requirements (particularly speeds and interconnections) and design implementations for the a variety of parts of a computer — focusing for the most part on the way by which the central processing unit (CPU) performs within and accesses addresses in memory.
It may as well be defined as the science and art of selecting and interconnecting hardware components to make computers that meet functional, performance and cost goals.
