Beltline's Ryan Gravel (MCRP + M.ARCH '99) forms his own firm

External News Details

After spending more than seven years with the Perkins + Will architectural firm, Ryan Gravel has decided to blaze his own trail once again. Gravel is best known for writing his master’s thesis on a potential transformation of a 22-mile circular rail corridor surrounding central Atlanta – a project now known as the Atlanta BeltLine.

Gravel sent an email to his friends and associates Thursday saying he has formed his own firm – Sixpitch. “I’ve been chasing the Atlanta BeltLine for nearly 16 years, and today I’m excited to announce the next chapter in that journey – a new small consultancy called Sixpitch,” Gravel wrote in the email. “It will allow me to be more agile in my chase to unlock the project’s potential, explore related challenges like equity, politics and regional vision, and also translate ideas from our story to a national audience.”
