You have no obligation to withdraw your bid. They can reject it as non-responsive. That is their only option if they don't want to award you the contract. They may, however, not be able to award you the contract either, since it is non-responsive. It really sounds like there is no option for either you or the architect but for them to reject your non-responsive bid.
