Next Generation Honoree: Beck Architecture’s Ryan Woods Brings Unique Perspective
Ryan Woods is a leader in the real estate and design community of Atlanta. As an Associate and Project Designer at Beck Architecture, Woods has worked on a number of high-profile projects around Atlanta, including Mercedes-Benz Stadium, the Phipps Plaza Façade redesign and the Peachtree Center Mall and Plaza renovation.
Woods has also received a number of accolades for his work, and helps coach other leaders as a member of NAIOP Future Leaders and as a leader of the NOMA mentor program. In addition, he regularly speaks at a variety of events on the topic of design and construction.
These are just a few of the reasons we chose Woods to be one of the Atlanta and Southeast region 2019 Next Generation Award Winners. Connect Media’s third annual Next Generation Awards recognize young leaders in the commercial real estate industry who are likely to be influential for years to come.
One of the hallmarks of Woods is his perspective coming from the design field. His unique vantage point allows him to be in discussion with a variety of people and trades within the CRE field, from architecture and construction, to finance and law. Woods has used this perspective to bring professionals together for panel discussions on Atlanta downtown development and the future of urban amenities in Atlanta.
