e believe there is no way to deliver the full value of building simulation without empowering all team members to contribute their skills, knowledge and expertise. To make the best decisions, we must work together and we built Pollination because we believe that “when an expert network is functioning as its best, the smartest person in the room is the room itself."
We knew this when we created Ladybug Tools and it’s for this reason that the true value of Ladybug Tools lies in its community of thousands of experts who have collectively transformed environmental building simulation in the AEC industry. Sharing knowledge, openly collaborating, and transparently discussing research questions are now the norm on the Ladybug Tools forum and across the hundreds of scientific research papers that cite Ladybug Tools.
These same principles guide the core decisions we made while building Pollination and, like Ladybug Tools, it is a platform where people can build on each other's work and learn from one other.
