summary This article presents a proposal of analysis of the architectural formal production accomplished in computing environment, putting emphasis on the most recent experimental production found in specialized publications. This analysis shows how the introduction of the computing tools may interfere with the design process, mainly when it is the production of complex forms, non-conventional. Thus, besides the recent architectural production of several offices and / or architecture companies of international renown, architectural experiences which have been developed by architects since the introduction of the CAD systems in there production are also presented Next, it presents the possibilities of the three-dimensional modeling, by making an analysis of the current possibilities, the geometric and the procedural ones, putting enphasis on the modeling of splines, NURBS and metaballs, which proved to be appropriate for the architectural production of complex forms.
