It isn’t mandatory but without GCSE art your will struggle to study an art & design A level and without a creative A level you’ll be at a disadvantage when it comes to producing a portfolio.

Architecture is a design based degree and career. If you’re not keen on drawing and creating enough to take art gcse then it might not be a good choice for you.

I'm surprised your school doesn't offer DT - are you sure (they may not all it that), Yes, take Art. You'll also need to do well at Maths.

I’d say trying to get the best grades possible in art, maths, and physics will be beneficial to you when applying for architecture at unis; lots of the ones I looked at required specific grades in these subjects at gcse in order to apply to the course I also know lots of people who did geography at gcse/a level and got onto architecture courses, so maybe that could be a subject you consider taking, although that’s just a suggestion for if you enjoy the subject anyway, not important like the subjects mentioned previously!
