Dhruv Mehta




Dhruv Mehta is a licensed architect (COA, India), furniture designer and academic from India. His work is invested in architecture's complex relation with canon and its role in the contemporary world. Over the last few years, Mehta's design work has explored themes of formalism, satire, non-linearity, and politics. 

Mehta graduated with an M.Arch II from Harvard Graduate School of Design, where he was the cohort representative and chair of the South Asia group. In 2023, he and his team conceptualized and built the winning entry, Turtles All the Way Down at Gund Hall. He helped design and execute Machado Silvetti's Unprecedented Realism (2022) and Our Artificial Nature (2023) exhibition at the Druker Design Gallery.

His practice in India works on residential projects and furniture design, which deal with ideas of labor, interiority, and curation within a complex context. 

He is a Design Critic at Rhode Island School of Design, teaching Advanced Studios, and an Adjunct faculty member at the Wentworth Insitute of Technology, teaching undergraduate architecture studios. He has previously taught for the Design Discovery program at Harvard and has been a guest critic at various architecture institutions. In a constant effort toward research, Mehta has worked with Rahul Mehrotra and Eric Howeler, among others, exploring contemporary construction and design internationally and in South Asia.
