summary Several digital techniques are currently being used in architecture, and animation is certainly one of the most popular in the professional and academic realms. However, its use is frequently limited to representational purposes as an end stage in the creative process. This article will focus on the alternative use of animation techniques as generative tools. It will show how such new generative tools can affect the creative process of form generation by contextualizing these phenomena within advances in complex system theory and in computation. Despite the use of such animation techniques be recent in architecture, the article will pinpoint some examples of how they were used to shape architectural form by taking into account the forces present in specific design contexts.
