Intermittently Ongoing Canadian Institute of Education and Applied Neuroscience
Consultant with Dr. Harry Cotton, founder of The Canadian Institute of Education and Applied Neuroscience, to develop curriculum, identity, branding and course material of for A5, The Advanced Academy of Applied Alternative Architecture. This new school is directed at instructing the lay person, specifically in third-world rural areas but otherwise open to any applicant, in the construction of homes and community centers using low-tech ancient methods of building with the earth, dirt, in combination with cost effective new concepts and technology in structures, energy conservation and production, waste management, and water conservation. One aspect of this venture was the production of a set of sturdy simple info-graphic construction documents, without words, with the intent spreading this knowledge quickly and without the need to translate into local indigenous languages. The aforementioned goals in combination with Dr. Cottons specialized knowledge and methods of quickly teaching languages and complex ideas to lay-persons make A5 a unique and innovative institution.
