It’s the only one of the seven Wonders of the World that’s still standing today. 5 million tons of stone stacked, 146 metres high, 4,500 years ago! The Great Pyramid of Khufu is the tallest, largest and most enigmatic of all the Pharaonic constructions. 45 centuries later, the mystery lives on: how was the pyramid actually built?

French architect Jean-Pierre Houdin has been investigating this question for ten years. He’s scrutinized and studied the monument with the eye of an expert, as if he were going to rebuild the whole thing himself. Today, at the end of his investigations and with the help of new technology, he’s offering a revolutionary solution. Could he have managed to solve the mystery of the Great Pyramid of Khufu?
