Ryan Gravel

Urban Planner & Visionary

Ryan Gravel was a Georgia Tech graduate student when he envisioned Atlanta's abandoned railroad tracks serving another purpose. Today construction crews are turning his idea into the Atlanta Beltline, a loop of parks, trails, and (one day) transit circling the city. The urban planner, designer, and founding principal of Sixpitch — who lives along the project in Inman Park — has traveled the world talking about the Beltline, the importance of infrastructure, and cities. Gravel's first book, Where We Want to Live, is was published in 2016.
