summary Informal has to do with shifting certainties and the insertion of unexpected, chance and improvisation. The ‘formalization’ of the informal is the subject of this paper; seeking to explore the possibility to have atypical and not rigorous formalizations. But if that is possible until what point informality can be described and designed? By presenting an experimental and realized architectural project we bring forward the necessity of rethinking the concepts of design and construction evolution. There is a strong relation between techniques and the generation, control and construction of complex forms. It is clear that the animation techniques and the dynamic vectorial systems that they are used during the design process played a vital role in the liberation from a pre-conceived typology, as well as in morphing, in controlling, and in materialization of the new that didn’t exist before.
