The Melting Pot by Jacopo Hirschstein
London is known as a multicultural hub, a 'melting pot' where millions of people live their day to day lives forming part of a vibrant mix of ethnic diversity. But what is the scale of this diversity? And how is it distributed throughout the city? Are our preconceived ideas different from the reality?
This map shows the culmination of 8,173,941 dots, each one representing a person living in London and coloured by ethnicity according to the ONS Census 2011. The data is organised into separate layers, each containing one ethnic group, allowing them to be viewed individually or in combination with others.
