Turning Part of a Derelict Building

Commuters in the UK city of Liverpool will be treated to the sensational sight of a city centre eyesore literally turning itself inside out. The former Yates Wine Lodge building, opposite Moorfields station, is now the subject of one of the more eye-catching pieces of art planned for Capital of Culture.

Sculptor Richard Wilson has cut out an egg-shaped section of the derelict building’s front and fixed it to a giant pivot. The facade will rotate like a huge opening and closing window, giving passers-by a glimpse of the interior.
