The identification of the software version of a Potemkin village which is an antipattern is discussed. Software antipattern address problem-solution pairs in which the typical solution is more harmful than the problem it solves. In essence, an antipattern presents an identifiable problem, the accompanying harmful effects of the typical solution, and a more appropriate solution called a refactoring. Potemkin village is more fully developed as an architectural and a management antipattern when the practice of building Potemkin villages is institutionalized.
