Well, my architecture professor( who has built numerous buildings) would say: "I don't give a damn if its good architecture, cause simply no one else will"...But I believe you are referring to idea. Great architecture builds from program- a basis. It's soul/personality is not built from a concept but from itself. You don't want to get caught up in a concept because it limits the projects. Some architecture firms but 20-30 models out there for one project and each are completely different. Rules are what matter, not concept. Concept will come into play when trying to explain to a client at the end and will emerge from these rules. Because, a concept is nothing more than explaining the rules that were applied to a program.
