The paper addresses an urgent issue, the preservation of the wooden architecture of historical cities, and dwells in particular, on an All-Russian phenomenon — wooden buildings in the classicist style. In the construction of historical cities of Russia and Siberia in the nineteenth century. mandatory construction on “exemplary” projects led to the widespread spread of classical wooden architecture. Although the construction of Tyumen in the second half of the nineteenth century was no exception, as the other cities of the country, it had unique features. A comprehensive scientific analysis of wooden buildings in the classicist style on the territory of the city of Tyumen obtained following results: objects in this style were identified with their systematization according to spatial planning and architectural and artistic characteristics; characteristic features determined. The scientific novelty of the study consists in the systematization of the types of classical wooden buildings in Siberian cities (through the example of Tyumen) on the basis of bibliographic, archival and field studies. The architectural analysis of the objects allowed for making conclusions about the value of wooden classical houses, the need for their fixation (making sketches, photo fixation, dimensional drawings), further study and preservation. The theoretical and practical significance of the paper lies in the collected, analyzed and systematized material on the wooden architecture of the historical Siberian city, which can be used in the preparation for the lectures on the history of architecture of Siberia, promotion of historical and architectural heritage, in the implementation of projects to preserve the wooden architecture of cities and in other areas.
