Will it dry out? Sure. But it will take forever.
You MUST have air circulation to dry out wood.
If you look at woodsheds people have built, youll see that the sides and top are ventilated.
Now, you could use it, but youd have to figure a way to get air moving on the back side. Maybe vent panels installed all around?

As others said you need air movement to dry the wood. Moving air is far more important than sun exposure.
Large gable vents on both ends and one or two vents in the rear wall should help the wood dry out in a shed like that.

Thanks for the responses guys. That‚Äôs also what I was thinking, making some kind of vents to allow the air to move through the building
Definitely will dry faster with air from bottom, top, and all sides. But that's a nice shed none the less.

My sister had a shed like that,, they filled it with split hardwood,, on pallets.
the plan was to have wood for the next three years,,
By the third year, the wood was useless,, it had been consumed by termites,,
Some of the tractors include JD 4105, JD 855, JD 650,,,, and,,, the IH 584 4WD
My favorite attachment is the homemade landplane,,, EVERYONE needs one of those!!
I agree with the others that wood dries faster if you have air moving but that shed's not air tight so it will dry with the shed in the current configuration. For years, I put wood in an old grain bin and it dried just fine in that.
Termites are an issue. If you can have the ground treated first and then put a layer of rock or milled asphalt down, it will help. I didn't see your location but in our area if wood is touching the ground, you will eventually get termites unless you treat. Cholorodane is off the market but it was far superior at keeping termites away, regardless of other issues it may have caused.
If you rotate your wood and don't let it stay in one spot too long, it helps with termites and other bugs. One of these days, I'd like to build a solar firewood kiln with a design to get the wood hot enough to kill most bugs but that's hard to do in our area if you are using only solar. BTW, your shed cold be easily adapted to a solar kiln if you wanted to. Most of the kilns have a similar shape with a solar collection area leading to a plenum.

That looks perfect for storing a tractor
I just posted this to the fire wood thread. I'm using a similar type of building but without a front or back and the wood dries real well! But, you'll do yourself a favor by stacking the rows front to back and not side to side so the air / wind can get at it. I use some large tarps the span the front and back during the winter so the snow doesn't blow in and cover everything inside - including my tractor
