Turning the Place Over by Richard Wilson

The most most radical intervention into architecture by artist Richard Wilson in the Liverpool city center. Most amazing art installation ever, huh? -Hang-

Turning the Place Over consists of an 8 metres diameter ovoid cut from the facade of a building in Liverpool city centre and made to oscillate in three dimensions. The revolving façade rests on a specially designed giant rotator, usually used in the shipping and nuclear industries, and acts as a huge opening and closing ‘window’, offering recurrent glimpses of the interior during its constant cycle during daylight hours.
