There used to be just a hot road full of cars in the centre of Vienna just a couple of days ago, now Viennese can cool off in a swimming pool, have a picnic, watch a dance performance or simply relax. This temporary green and blue oasis in public space will be there for Viennese to enjoy until the end of August.

It's similar inside the house, the sun burns in the windows, and attempts at ventilation bring the same result as when you open a hot oven. This is how most of us feel on a hot summer day in the city. But the solution exists.

The garden of the museum used to be a little-used, freely accessible grassy area with a spring. Thanks to the employees and volunteers, old apple tree varieties were returned to the garden, a water surface, and a rain flower bed were created.
