is a multidisciplinary creative collaborative founded by Lucia and Ito in Minneapolis, MN in 2018.

LUCITO approaches each work as an open-ended process without preconceived notions of material, form and concept, wherein each intervention evolves out of an act of discovery and limitation. Formally trained in architecture, both Lucia and Ito see their practice as one that is informed by this disciplinary approach to cultural production fusing history, perception, and experience through material-spatial practice.
Our creative process is one of finding the project through context, dialogue, historic reference, and material constraint.

LUCITO’s work spans scale, medium and context–from writing, printmaking, multimedia, installation, sculpture, furniture design, interior design, space planning, architecture (commercial and residential) and land art.

Lucia is a designer, multimedia artist, academic and co-founding principal of LUCITO.

Lucia has taught at several institutions, most recently as a Lecturer in Graduate Architecture at the Weitzman School of Design, University of Pennsylvania. From 2015-17 he held the position of Cass Gilbert Visiting Assistant Professor in the School of Architecture, College of Design, University of Minnesota.  Lucia has also taught at The Azrieli School of Architecture and Urbanism, Carleton University and Cornell University, AAP.  He has been nominated for the United States Artist Fellowship and the Civitella Ranieri Prize for Architecture.

Lucia received a Master of Architecture from the University of Pennsylvania and a B.A. in Architecture from the University of Minnesota.
