An essay that claims for the generation and representation of form in architecture, taking into consideration theoretical basements recently reviewed in terms of topology in architecture and one of its modeling resources, the NURBS. A background to the current generative techniques is presented, from manual computation to interpreted programming languages, like RhinoScript, from which it’s shown a stub on the state-of-the-art within this area in architectural design in both professional and academic levels, especially in the Ibero-american region. These demonstrate what resources that have the designers, who are showing a new form of sensitivity in the architecture of the digital age.
