I'm not sure if this is a common sentiment, but wouldn't an architect that does not know how to code have a very hard time convincing the other (seniors, but in particular juniors I guess) engineers to follow their designs? I guess it is possible to fake a while , but only a while...

I don't expect my architect to know the ins and outs of Go, I expect them to have a strategy that is forward thinking a few years out. Plans on cloud integration, ci/CD requirements, updating legacy systems to be containerized, managing kube clusters, etc. They should know the pros and cons related. They don't need to write a for loop.
