The Atlanta Beltline was born in academia as an idea for a better way of life. Now, it’s a $4 billion infrastructure project in the early stages of implementation. Its co-founder and author Ryan Gravel will describe how this catalyst project came to life, what it means, and why it matters. Building on the title of his book, Where We Want to Live , Gravel will expand on these ideas, concluding with his most current project – the Atlanta City Design. This daunting effort uncovers the city’s civic identity to ensure that its unprecedented growth will deliver an Atlanta we want to live in.
