Had the same issue. What I did to fix it was fast travel to the foward station right in front of the quest, saved the game, swapped out 1 party member, ran over to where the architect was and then reloaded the saved that I had created. When I loaded it up I heard Drack say something about the fight and walked over the that area and it finally came down to fight me. Hope the helps/works for you.

I had a slightly different issue with this boss.

On my first attempt the boss fight wouldn't trigger so I did a reload from the near by forward station.

The boss glitches out on Conduit 2/3. It seems like I out DPS'd the leg. I destroyed it before the first wave of additional foes spawned. The leg would reopen with 0 HP left and was indestructible causing me to be stuck in a loop of fighting adds without getting the last crack at the head.

Died and reset. Did not use buffs/powers to defeat boss and completed as normal.

Kinda silly considering this would be penalizing players for making a solid DPS build.

Glad to hear you found a workaround, I will try this when I get home tonight and report back. Fingers crossed !

So I managed to get through this, I ended up leaving the planet and doing missions on another planet for the rest of the day, I came back on today and traveled back to Elaaden and was now able to engage the architect in combat.

 

Anyone having this problem I would advise leaving it for a while and coming back to the planet later after completing some other missions. Either that or keep trying to leave the planet and going back

This was happening to me on the ps4 as well. I tried using a lower dps weapon as per part of one of the suggestions, but no luck. Then I went into the Nomad and extracted to orbit. I came back down, quick traveled to where the Architect mission starts (that was not marked), and finally was able to get him using my low dps weapon and not using my dps buff (tactical cloak).

This happened to me too, what I did was go to teleport to a forward station that was further away, then drive into the area and it seemed to fix it. Could be a chance that going to the closest one doesn't initiate the fight sometimes.

I had this same issue (and made a bug post) about the Architect on EOS, 2/3 conduits destroyed, it was moving to its final position, and it just glitches out doing it's worm movement in the air.

No known fix for this, as I loaded an earlier save and it didn't work.

However my friends didn't have this problem.

This has to deal with the way in which the 'asset' is loaded.

 

In this case, the architect loads before a precursor condition can be met. In order to meet this condition, drive far away, enough so that you can with a direct line of sight, watch the architect 'disappear' from view. This unloads it from memory, now just turn around and drive back towards it. Loading from the close pod doesn't meet the trigger or event condition necessary to make the architect a targetable asset, at this point it is just acting as a non-interactive model.
