The wraps are off David Adjaye's Whitechapel Idea Store. The 5,000m 2 fi ve-storey building is animated by panels of blue and green glass, a reference to the awnings of neighbouring market stalls. Escalators rise behind the main facade creating a link between the street and the upper fl oors. The project follows Adjaye's Idea Store in Chrisp Street, Poplar (AJ 12.08.04) and is one of seven planned in all. For the full building study go to www. ajplus. co. uk
