Lucas works as an event initiator, writer and moderator in the field of design. He was a guest professor at both the Berlin design faculties. He founded a design office in 1996. They designed projects for different governmental bodies. Quite some projects were self-initiated. Schie was a typical example of the nineties Dutch Design attitude, as described in 'Superdutch' and 'Artificial landscape'.
In 2001 Lucas moved to 'Premsela, Dutch platform for design'. He worked as a program-manager. In 2005 I changed to the Academy for Architecture and Urban design in Rotterdam. He was the Dean (director) until 2009. He started a magazine (Huig) and initiated masterclasses for urban-planners. With students he researched the impact of Olympic games on cities. He co-founded a Design platform in Rotterdam, that still exist. They stage discussions and meetings for professionals in the creative industry. Lucas has been writing during his whole career, for online and offline design magazines such as Dezeen, Items, Archis, SR & O, and Archined. Some of the articles are on his blog.
