As the author of a mystery novel set in the Natural History Museum, Rattle His Bones, I found this article fascinating. The architecture of the building played quite a big part in my story. I didn't realize how much I'd missed, in spite of being shown around by the Archivist. I had the original floor plans to help, but they didn't mention the ornamentation. Wish I'd read the article first!
The terracotta decoration is so prominent a part of the building, I doubt it would be possible to set a book there without including it.
