I feel your pain when the architect is dismissed at the end of schematic design phase and the project still is built. In my instance, the previous generation AIA contract had language to charge an additional fee when discharged without cause. And I was paid for being terminated.
As a side bar, the house design still needed some refinement. However the contractor and his draftsman did not have the knowledge or skills to complete the improvements to the design. I would cringe inside whenever I drove by the house. Several years later the house burned down to the ground due to an electrical problem. I swear that I did not have anything to do with it, but it is much more satisfying driving along that street now.
