The firm was founded in 1978 by Ralph Appelbaum (born 1942), a graduate of Pratt Institute and former Peace Corps volunteer (in Peru). Appelbaum currently directs RAA's undertakings, and retains daily involvement in selected commissions.
The company's best-known project is the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C., which is the United States' official memorial to the Holocaust. Established in 1993, the museum has been described as a "turning point in museology".
