During the hottest days of the year in July, many people long for the next season where leaves are falling and days become cooler. In some places of the world, they may not be able to experience all four seasons or they come and go faster than we want them to. But what if we could always experience a specific season? An Italian architect is planning to make that a reality through renewable energy.

Carlo Ratti has developed the “Garden of the Four Seasons,” which is 2,500 square meters (nearly 27,000 square feet) of a covered garden that will be experiencing summer, winter, spring, and autumn in different segments. It’ll be located in the northwestern part of Milan, Italy, and it was commissioned by CityLife, which is a new district that will feature businesses and residential areas and it’s expected to be completed by 2018.
