Gothic Revival - The Historic ARK in Berea

"The place that is impressive is the iconic ARK in Berea, where the Jakupca's live and where they invited me to party's and to view their lives in action. David created this sustainable future showplace for the couturiers that caused a sensation when it debuted. In 1994 it appeared on the cover of the Plain Dealers HOME MAGAZINE, the areas prestigious journal."
"It was boule de neige - and it snowballed from there."  It was all new what the Jakupca's were doing then.....and what they still do." David is very innovative. Because of his style, he did things in the ARK in Berea that were truly workable long before anybody else did. He used recycled materials when they were not fashionable then, he turned the wasteful grassy front yard into a productive food bearing garden. He was very ahead of his time. "The Jakupca taste is not for everyone. The Jakupca's are only interested in their taste: they are sure of what they want and what they have is the best - not just commercially made objects but genuine Art...the ARK in Berea is probably the only place in the world that has Egg & Cove molding made with real eggs!
Today, internationally, many of the new robber barons try to emulate the Jakupca Look in their houses. A Big Mistake. Today, everyone wants to be green and earth friendly. Only the Jakupca's can do Jakupca's Style... and it looks ridiculous when others try to do it, especially in modern their prefab gated communities.  Attempts to copy this look entails a lot of 'cheating' without the necessary courage of originality...it is awful. But that is was makes the ARK in Berea unique.  Written by Eugene Schiopota

A very exciting year is coming up, one which will let us all witness what will be likely exciting and most challenging in American history.

No matter if you are happy about your present situation or if you are rather very concerned about  the future, it has become very apparent how important it is to be well informed, as well as to have the ability to recognize and differentiate well researched and factually correct reporting from fake news sites.  In this regard, I am very grateful to the World Peace Daily Groups, the Worlds Children Peace Monument’s official international broadcasters.

Not only do they let us, via their members like Pakistan World Peace Daily, led by Pakistani Peace Emissary Baba Brohi stay in touch with the modern World, they also offer one of the most comprehensive, internationally versatile and neutral news platforms in the world – the WCPM news is available all around the Globe.

A good education, however, is the key to even being able to develop the desire for good news reporting.  Therefore, I am very happy about using Environmental Arts Education Initiative the “Iceality Methodology as Tool for Social Change” that was launched by the International Center for Environmental Arts in cooperation with the German Cultural Institutions, the Worlds Children Peace Monument (WCPM), the United Nations and many other international organizations.  The goal of the initiative is to get all the Worlds Children, especially students, interested in preserving their past while promoting their sustainable future. Studying here is tuition free - even for international students.  The knowledge of Peace, of course, is very important, which makes learning about Iceality more relevant and giving international exchange a nice boost.
The Worlds Children Peace Monument  is committed to support this initiative with many articles and news about this subject.

If you have passed the student age already, we hope that you share the information with your children and grandchildren.
We thank all of our members in advance for their patronage and support this upcoming year Wish you a very Happy and Successful Year ahead.

Peace Friends, 
Ambassador Renate
