ARM was also commissioned to prepare the masterplans for Melbourne Docklands, the Adelaide Festival Plaza Precinct and Elizabeth Quay in Perth.

A national survey of 600 architects conducted by the Architectural Review Australia found ARM to be considered the most influential architectural office in Australia in the period 1982-2007. ARM is the only Australian firm to win the Australian Institute of Architects' Premier State Award five times, most recently for the Perth Arena in Western Australia. Their design work has been featured on two Australian postage stamps.
