This captioned movie shows how the roof of The Shed, currently under construction in New York's Hudson Yards, will move back and forth.
Located beside the High Line, the eight-storey cultural centre is designed by New York studio Diller Scofidio + Renfro, with collaborating architect Rockwell Group.
The moving roof allows the building to double in size, transforming the adjoining plaza into an event space. The mechanism includes a sled drive that pushes the 37-metre-tall steel frame, which is clad in translucent polymer, along a pair of 83-metre-long rails.
The building is due to open 5 April 2019.
