In computer world, there is a position called "architect", like "system architect", "solution architect". What is the corresponding verb of doing it? E.g.,

He was a system architect in our team. He architected the whole infrastructure for us.

EDIT This is a very specific question in computer world, so if you are not 100% clear what an "application architect" and an "application designer" does, and their differences, please refrain from answering the question.

Your sentence maybe should read

He was a system architect on our team.

Usually, one would not say

He architected the whole infrastructure for us.

but possibly

He was the architect of the infrastructure.

in order of decreasing similarity to architected

He specified the whole infrastructure for us.
He outlined the whole infrastructure for us.
He designed the whole infrastructure for us.
He developed the whole infrastructure for us.

From my experience, the person who is the architect is the one who specifies the flow of process and logic, not necessarily the one who implements the solution, but could also be.

For example, one can "develop an API", as in code it, and also "develop an API", as in an iterative process of specification. Mutual understanding is necessary to tease out the intent of "develop".
