On 27 May 2011 the Ortelius Drew drawing group (AMSTERDAM) held their monthly drawing session on the 7th floor of the Volkskrantgebouw at restaurant Canvas op de 7e. People working in the building as well as the neighboring public were also invited to come out and draw. From this view from the top, this diverse group of artists, illustrators and architects drew from the transforming area below surrounding the Wibautstraat.
The drawings from this session were exhibited in the lobby of the Volkskrantgebouw in conjunction with the TRANSVORMERS festival on 3 June 2011.
