Figure Ground

Figure Ground diagrams are very useful to see the density of an area and also to get a sense of scale. Essentially the drawing depicts any building mass as a solid black against a plain white background. In this instance what is most interesting is the difference in scale within a small radius of the site. The Grapes pub itself is locate in the set of terraces on the north of the bank shown, and is a complete contrast to Canary Wharf located at the right of the diagram.
