    Abstract

    We construct a functor AC(-, -) from the category of path connected spaces X with a base point x to the category of simply connected spaces. The following are the main results of the paper: (i) If X is a Peano continuum then AC(X, x) is a cell-like Peano continuum; (ii) If X is n-dimensional then AC(X, x) is (n + 1)-dimensional; and (iii) For a path connected space X, π1(X, x) is trivial if and only if π2(AC(X, x)) is trivial. As a corollary, AC(S1, x) is a 2-dimensional nonaspherical cell-like Peano continuum.
