Assistant with the qualification of ‘Scholar’ in the Architectural Composition course during the year 1983 (Report of the Faculty Council of 18 April 1978).


Umberto Tari Capone assisted in teaching the Architectural Composition course of 1971. In fact, he still had not graduated when he became informally involved in assisting in the Architectural Composition course directed by Prof. Giuseppe Perugini. He collaborated in this role, coordinating ongoing seminars for that year, and actively taking part in the drafting of a publication summarizing debated topics, prepared by a group of Prof. Perugini’s collaborators.

In 1972 he organized activities between the courses Architectural Composition and Mathematical Analysis headed by Prof. Maria Fonti Zevi. This was born out of ​​an attempt to test some of the models of Kinetic Architecture which on the basis of new themes developed at the university by a group of mathematicians and urban planners (Prof. Maria Fonti Zevi, Prof. Scimemi, etc.) made use of the advantages of working with the appropriate electronic calculator. Research on the potentiality of this method within the context of a multi-purpose theatrical body was the theme developed for his 1973 undergraduate thesis.

Meanwhile, he began his work as an academic co-supervisor attempting to interpret the requirements of the course whilst ensuring that the course itself was consistently based within a cultural context, believing this essential in contributing to research in the field of architectural experimentation

In the following years, he continued his work with the Architectural Composition V course, with seminars in collaboration with undergraduates, devoting greater efforts to supporting the importance of the methodology associated with the concept:: the need to consider non- specific architecture as a point of reference for interim monitoring and in some cases its usefulness in helping the architect to free himself from all those constraints that limit his expressive potential.

With reference to the marginalization a recent architecture graduate experiences in the world of work, most of the time because of an inability to control a constantly evolving market, he dedicated himself to devoloping and honing students’ interest when it came time to choose the operating parameters for the study of industrial building components. supporting the needs of the architect outside the confines of the university with the most advanced aspects of technology,. He confirmed the requirements, shared by the most advanced architecture schools, which are unwilling to lose contact with the needs of the world of work.
