As the population grows, it is a matter of time until the city will swallow the countryside,
Then the distance between the production and the consumption areas will get shorter.
The Dynamic terrace integrates both by using space/time potential.
The structure is made of trusses hanging on two dynamic constructive facades, the truss is subdivided by a constriction grid which based on the fields row dimensions,
carries all the system within and use as a base for one big open floor.
The building has two setups, a close setup and an open one.
during the day it is closed as stacked up slabs in one static position; while during the night its expanded, the floors can slide on the facade, detach from the infrastructures and enable a variety of different position between the slabs.
