Human civilization from an early age has been influenced by different philosophical developments whether that is through its literal, cultural, social or architectural aspects. Art and literature which is a media for such philosophical development thus plays a vital role in molding the lives and lifestyles of the people. Among some of the great pioneers of the 19th and the 20th century who catalyzed such development, was Bisya Kabi (Poet of the Universe) Rabindranath Tagore. Rabindranath Tagore is a charismatic versatile in the world of literature. His work seems to touches the souls of Bengalis and gives rise to a new formed passion for literature. However, his role in the innovation of educational ideas has been eclipsed by his fame as a poet. An important parcel of the life of the great poet remains amidst the outskirts of Shilaidaha. Many of his poetries were inspired from the natural beauty of Shilaidaha and Padma river. In commemoration of the great poet, Rabindra University is a proposed project under University Grants Commission (UGC) of Bangladesh. The board decided to set up the university near or adjacent to Shilaidaha Kuthibari. This thesis project is the proposal of a Rabindra Institute of performing arts under this University. Rabindra Institute will be a center of learning for promoting, extending and disseminating Tagore's thoughts and ideas in various branches of Performing Arts and related branches of knowledge. My thesis project will seek to create an environment that encourages learning process by the issue of emotional and physical well-being, that Rabindranath envisioned. It will also respect and conserve the historical Kacharibari which upholds the memories of Rabindranath Tagore, with an adaptive reuse.
