Here is a nice introduction to architectural patterns. Some people call them architectural styles, I believe. In short, architectural patterns deal with how to build a system while design patterns deal with how to solve a problem. Typically, an architectural pattern presents a combination of architectural components/modules and their roles.

Architectural Patterns are much broader in scope than Design Patterns. An example of an Architectural Pattern is the much-loved MVC Pattern.
If you are looking for books on Architectural Patterns, I suggest:
Pattern-Oriented Software Architecture, Volume 1: A System of Patterns(great book on broad architecture choices)
Patterns of Enterprise Application Architecture(easily the best book written about enterprise application development)
