Ashton Raggatt McDougall or ARM Architecture is a firm of architects based in Melbourne and Perth, Australia known for "architectural outspokenness".[1] Founded in 1988, the firm has completed internationally renowned design work and the directors are Stephen Ashton, Howard Raggatt, Ian McDougall and Tony Allen.

Their most notable projects are Perth Arena, the National Museum of Australia in Canberra, Wanangkura Stadium in Port Hedland, the Melbourne Recital Centre and Southbank Theatre in Melbourne and the Marion Cultural Centre in Adelaide. They are also highly regarded for their heritage and renewal projects like the refurbishment of Hamer Hall at Arts Centre Melbourne, the courtyard extensions to the Shrine of Remembrance in Melbourne, RMIT University's Storey Hall, the redevelopment of the Melbourne Central Shopping Centre. They were also commissioned to prepare the masterplan for Melbourne Docklands, the Adelaide Riverbank 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.[2] ARM are also the only Australian firm to win the premier state award for Australian Institute of Architects five times, most recently for the Perth Arena in Western Australia.[3] Their design work has been featured on two Australian postage stamps.[4]
