Quantum architecture is the study of how efficiently a quantum algorithm can be implemented given realistic constraints on qubit layout and interactions. The usual model is a two dimensional lattice with single- and two-qubit nearest-neighbor gates. I will present recent progress in constructing quantum circuits on a 2D architecture, which can be used to implement Shor's factoring algorithm in depth polylogarithmic in the size of the input, described in http://arxiv.org/abs/1207.6655 I will also discuss the connection between quantum architecture and quantum compiling via the Kitaev-Shen-Vyalyi algorithm, more general results about how quantum architecture affects algorithm efficiency, and implications for future research, both theoretical and experimental.
