Somebody in east London doesn't like David Adjaye's Stirling-shortlisted Idea Store in Whitechapel. Contrary to what the gossipmongers may tell you, the shattered pane of glass on the firstfloor overhang of the green-and-blue striped library is not due to structural movement but to vandals. Police are looking for a villain with a very powerful throwing arm. Or an extremely tall Peeping-Tomcum-bookworm with a large bump on his head.
