Abstract: Construction with wood has been common in Lithuania since olden times. Most wooden houses were built during the first half of the twentieth century, there are also older ones built since the end of the nineteenth century. A lot of valuable wooden buildings from the mentioned period such as small manor and garden estate houses, villas, cottages, summer homes, residential rental units and military and railway complexes have survived in the second of largest city of Lithuania (historical capital of Interwar period) – Kaunas. Representative buildings of all these types need to be preserved in all areas of Kaunas, because they are exceptional for conveying local identity. The article is meant to reveal the diversity of fragile wooden architecture in Kaunas and describe the prospects and significance of one of the conceivable and one incoming way of its preservation – digitization method.
