Ryan Gravel
Architect, Perkins+Will
Originator of Atlanta BeltLine

Ryan received his bachelor’s degree in architecture and his joint master’s in architecture and city planning from Georgia Tech, where his thesis in 1999 laid out the original vision for the Atlanta BeltLine project. His subsequent work as a volunteer and later in the nonprofit and government sectors was critical to the BeltLine’s moving from thesis into reality. Ryan returned to private practice as an urban designer at Perkins+Will, working on a variety of planning and design projects, but remains very involved in the BeltLine.
