Nobody knows exactly what the balance of local feeling is towards House at this juncture. Opinion is divided in Bow as it is nationally. But the response to the work's challenging presence is strong, and its power and validity are hotly debated.
We believe that our neighbourhood committees should recognise the considerable swell of public interest in Rachel Whiteread's work, in Bow as elsewhere, and delay demolition - originally set for the end of this month - for the time being.
