The AJLC was designed to teach — conceived as a demonstration project, testing ground, educational venue, and catalyst for the emerging field of ecological design.
Lessons embodied in its technology and design choices were intended to reinforce those taught in its classrooms. The AJLC provides fertile ground for courses in a variety of disciplines, lecture series, student research, community groups, regional schools, and universities and professionals from abroad. Opportunities for interdisciplinary scientific, social and psychological inquiry abound.
