*Ladybug + Honeybee*

Ladybug and Honeybee are open source environmental plugins for Grasshopper
that help architects and engineers create an environmentally-conscious
architectural design.

Ladybug imports standard EnergyPlus Weather files (.EPW) into Grasshopper
and provides a variety of 3D interactive graphics to support the
decision-making process during the initial stages of design. The plugin
also provides further support for designers as they test their initial
design options with radiation, sunlight-hour, and shading analyses.
Integration with Grasshopper allows for an almost instantaneous feedback
and, since the plugin runs within the design environment, the information
and analyses are interactive.

Honeybee connects Grasshopper3D to EnergyPlus, Radiance, Daysim and
OpenStudio for building energy and daylighting simulation.  The Honeybee
project intends to make many of the features of these simulation tools
available in a parametric way.  Just as users have made changes to geometry
for years in Grasshopper, now users can parameterize system types, zoning
schemes, schedules of operation, daylight sensor placement and controls -
 all of the “hardcore” simulation parameters that have never been exposed
to parametric modeling tools.


*About the Speakers:*

*Mostapha Sadeghipour Roudsari*

Mostapha is the creator of Ladybug and Honeybee. Over the last few years he
has been dedicated to the integration of parametric environmental analysis
and architectural design. He is currently an Integration Applications
Developer of Thornton Tomasetti’s CORE Studio.

*Chris Mackey*

Chris Mackey is a student at MIT who is currently pursuing a dual degree
for a Masters of Architecture and a Masters of Science in Building
Technology. Chris is an avid contributor to the Ladybug + Honeybee
environmental analysis plugins for grasshopper. He has developed several
components for Ladybug + Honeybee including a number of indoor and outdoor
comfort tools.

*Chien Si Harriman*

Chien Si Harriman has more than 10 years of experience using EnergyPlus,
TRNSYS and IES<VE> focused on developing customized computational methods
to improve the quality and accuracy of complex plant-side and airloop HVAC
modeling and controls. He is also the developer of GrizzlyBear for Honeybee
which export Honeybee energy models as gbXML.
