Hi Santosh!

Think of an architect as someone who wraps their head around the business problem at hand, and defines a blueprint to follow that optimizes business operations. A blockchain architect will understand the business problem and try to design an optimal solution. For instance, they would ponder over key decisions such as the type of blockchain which would be most efficient: public/private, consensus mechanism to use, etc. Think of it as a mixture of R&D and Business development coupled with extensive understanding of blockchain technicalities to be able to tell what works best.

Whereas, the developer would be someone with the expertise to realize the blueprint into a functional one, someone ideally with the background of a software engineer and experience of working with DLTs to code, test and deploy the solution.

I hope that answers your question!
