The TWLS_2012 season is devoted to the notion of the dialogue/dialectic, the phenomenon of focused conversation and the shared learning that emerges from it. This season will feature four invited guest speakers, each paired with a representative from Taliesin. The invited guest will offer a lecture followed by a conversation with their counterpart, in which questions from the audience will also be welcomed. Each presentation will conclude with an informal reception.
Lectures begin at 7:30 in the Pavilion theater. The lecture series is Free and Open to the public and organized by the Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture.
The entrance to Taliesin West is located at the intersection of Frank Lloyd Wright Blvd. and Cactus Rd. in Scottsdale, Arizona.

Kevin is a principal of build llc, an architecture firm with several specializations, including renovating mid-century houses. He is also a creator of buildblog, a popular new-media compilation and information tool, in which they document, share, and educate on their work and that of similar designers.
Paul is a principal of Lukez Architecture, a long time educator and author of the book Suburban Transformations. In a world swimming with negative criticism about suburbia and development, Paul's visionary 'road-map' to remaking our built environment is a refreshing proactive alternative. Many of the projects are at a large urban or regional scale, yet simultaneously feature a certain level of focused precision in their design process. In the book, his methods for both understanding the big picture, and in turn how to surgically operate upon it, are described in graphic detail

Gerard Damiani is the founder and president of studio d'ARC architects, P.C. in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. A graduate of Syracuse University where he received his Bachelor of Architecture degree with honors, Gerard is an NCARB certified, registered architect with professional licenses in New York and Pennsylvania. Since 1996 his work has focused on the reinterpretation and reformation of the post-industrial context of Pittsburgh into new environments specific to their twenty-first century uses -- from high-tech office spaces, residences, and collegiate spaces to artists' studios, architect/artist collaborations, and exhibition installations. These works, as well as new projects, continue to draw important clues from their context to find an architecture that is inseparable from its time, place and participants
