Born and grown up in Berlin, Lukas Born studied Urban and Regional Planning at TU Berlin. He deepened his knowledge especially in the field of urban development in developing countries. He spent a few months in Cairo doing research on urban issues. His thesis is about regeneration of the old city of Jamnagar in India.

He worked more than five years in the field of neighborhood management for an urban development agency in Berlin-Wedding (L.I.S.T. GmbH) with emphasis on participation, traffic reduction schemes, art, and creative industries. This was followed by project management tasks for various European and national programs on employment, vocational training and conservation. In this context, he initiated the ‘Project Baerwaldbad’ at the municipal bathhouse in Berlin-Kreuzberg with Zukunftsbau GmbH. Under his direction, this project later received Europe’s most prestigious award for heritage protection, the European Union Prize for Cultural Heritage / Europa Nostra Award in the field of vocational training and education (Grand Prix, 2010). Together with colleagues from L.I.S.T. , he is co-author of the “Handbook on Participation” for the Senate Department for Urban Development, Berlin. Parallel to this, he freelanced as an academic mentor for the research project on ‘Urban Regeneration of Hidden World Heritage in L`viv’ for TU’s Urban Management program.

After many years of practical work, he returned to TU Berlin as a researcher. He joined the support team for BMBF’s research program on ‘Future Megacities” which was focusing on sustainable urban development in nine emerging megacities around the world. He acted as editor of the future megacities book series, published by JOVIS Verlag in 2013/14.

Between summer 2014 till the end of 2016, he joined the team of TU Berlin Campus El Gouna as program coordinator of the department of urban development and as a research assistant.
