"Concept" is basically your thoughts, ideas, or direction for solving the problem given you. It is both the "what will I do", and the "how will I do" it. In architecture, this could be-- what do I see the proposed building being [as to appearance, size, height, configuration, materials, textures, colors, etc.] and how do I think I can build that [what systems, structural framing, interior/exterior materials, joining them together, etc.] This, "in concept" is very general in nature, followed later by the specifics as you develop the design.
