Unfortunately, it is often due to a lack of education and understanding and wavering political will also from financial perspective, it is much more profitable to acquire land under an old wooden house and ledevelop it with buildings that are more economically viable rather than investing into the sustainable development of the ciiy. Future treatment of wooden houses, more and more often staring at the street empty-windowed. will depend on the highest-level heritage politics, as well аs the owners of these hous. Studying modern examples elsewhere would be advisable. In this case Kaunas in particular is perhaps too cramped, but after looking over the architectural creation of the past year in Lithuania, one easily nonces the Rupert an and education centre, the refurbishment of the former house of the orthodox pope, as well as the "Sea Sand. Wind' villas in Juodkrantė, The Nida art colony and other modern examples. [...]
