A council has changed a city center eyesore into an eye-catching piece of art...by turning the building inside out.

Commuters are sure to be astonished by the rotating facade that will reveal a glimpse of the interior.



The derelict building opposite a train station in Liverpool is set to become an impressive artwork

It's the brainchild of sculptor Richard Wilson, who cut an egg-shaped section out of the derelict building opposite Moorfields station in Liverpool, fixing the eight metre diameter piece on a pivot.

Mr Wilson is one of Britain's best known sculptors. He has been nominated for the Turner Prize twice and represented Britain at Biennial festivals across the world.

His artwork, called Turning The Place Over, has cost 450,000 and will run from June 20th until the end of 2008.



The rotating facade will astonish commuters in Liverpool

It was organised by the Culture Company and Liverpool Biennal. The Culture Company said it was an "astonishing feat of engineering, which will stun audiences."

What an amazing piece of engineering and design!

I think it's well cool, but the money could of been spent better elsewhere though.

Never seen that building before, but i'll probably notice it now lol

I wasnt suggesting it was a photoshop (hence I used the phrase "real life"), just that on the photos it looks like a photo shop, or better worded as a real life photo shop.
