The late Hugo Duffy attempted in his 1999 book, James Gandon and His Times, to reconstruct Gandon’s lost design for the Royal Exchange. Duffy based his attempted reconstruction (plan, section, elevation) on surviving contemporary written descriptions of Gandon’s design, which are quoted at length in the book.

(Incidentally, James Hoban, who went on to design the White House in Washington, once worked as an assistant to Thomas Cooley.)
