How can I determine which architecture (x86 or x64) my Ubuntu installation medium is for?

I don't have it installed, I just need to know which files on the installation media I can use to determine the architecture.

Remember, you can use the live environment to run Ubuntu without installing it... –  Aditya Jan 10 at 19:10
    
This question is not a duplicate since it does not involve an actual installation. –  Nathan Osman Jan 11 at 2:54
    
@NathanOsman: We can run the live environment and the same solutions would work. Am I mistaken somewhere? –  Aditya Jan 11 at 16:39

When there is a \EFI folder on the Iso it is 64-bit, 32-bit does not have a \EFI folder.
