dc.description.abstract Peace and love, both in concept and in practice have seemingly been pursued throughout man's history. Many men have put forth their lives that the world would someday be a more peaceful place to live. Wars have been fought to end all wars, and today many world powers have stock piles of nuclear armaments enough to kill every living thing 5-50 times over.Peaceful resistance occurring through the many ages of man, poses some alternatives to this type of thinking. This decade alone exemplifies more than enough, the need for this kind of thinking. The past seventy odd years have seen many men and women devoting their lives to the peaceable struggle(s) to cause change within an establishment. Men and women alike from all countries of the world have and still are struggling pacifively with the issues of international, national, and domestic concern, war, and the multitude of isms that exist within all societies. This movement, especially since the U.S. involvement in Southeast Asia, has been increasing in size and scale. Proponents of this movement are operating within all major U.S. cities with factions involving people of smaller communities.Sometime in the early 1970's the planning of one such faction began to materialize within Muncie, Indiana. Today, some five years later, such a center does exist and function, some seventeen and a half miles to the north, northwest of Muncie in a rural setting. The designer, having spent six months in residency in the existing center for peace and life studies" studying and developing himself to a better understanding of this lifestyle proposes the following. His skills and interests combined, have helped him set forth this thesis. A proposal for a "peace and life center", an extension to the existing foreseeably in the 1980's.
