Dhruv Batra

Visiting Faculty

Dhruv after pursuing his bachelor’s degree from B.I.T. Mesra, Ranchi went on to work with architect Dominic Dube in Bangalore where he worked on projects ranging from private residences, office buildings, to public spaces with a strong focus on modernity & minimalism stemming from the design ideologies of veteran architects like Le Corbusier, Alvaro Siza and contemporaries like David Chipperfield & Peter Zumthor. For a more holistic understanding of design and to explore interrelationships between the built form and cities, Dhruv pursued a Master of Science in Architecture and Urban Design at Columbia University, New York and worked in with several design firms in the United States before returning to India in 2017 and joined Common Ground Practice in Delhi as a senior architectural designer
