    would it be too much of a stretch to apply for 3 architecture courses and 2 history of art?

    Yes.

    Architecture programmes are studio-based professional training for the vocation of Architect. History of Art is a generalist academic degree that can be a prelude to working in the museum and conservation sector or may simply be as any other generic degree.

    They're vastly different both in style and purpose, and even if you could write a personal statement acceptable to both, why bother? If you want to be an architect, study architecture. If you don't, study something else - be it another art/design discipline which is not so tightly regulated as pre-professional training, or History of Art.
