Do you have a budget that you would like to stay within? It is true that the FX D600 would be better for architecture, the D7000 is a very capable camera and a bargain right now. If the budget is there, a perspective control lens like the Nikon 24 PC-E to get View Camera flexibility to eliminate geometric distortion.
A D7000 for well less then $1000 now and a used 24 PC-E would be a good combination but not wide enough for closer in subjects. That would be the real benefit of the D600 with that lens, it would be wide enough. It would also have wider dynamic range and color depth.
The D7000 is a real step up with some pro-features but it sounds as if you would benefit more than most people moving from Dx to Fx.
Nikon has been claiming it does not work on the D800 and presumably, niether on the D600 but users are reporting excellent results. Further questioning of Nikon revealed their statement that it does not work is due to camera control of the aperture not working. That is not the case with the D7000, D300, D3, D700, D800 and D600 and most Nikon film bodies, which work very well with it.
Here is a thread that should be of interest regarding the compatibility of the lens:

You can also simular some degree of geometric correction in post proccessing but it is has adverse effect on effective detail resolution
