        Here is a link to the website of the architect who proposed the theory

        http://www.construire-la-grande-pyramide.fr/

        and one to the folk who designed the computer graphics

        Craig Smith's "How the Great Pyramid Was Built" ( Smithsonian Books, 2004 ) develops the external spiral ramp theory now in vogue, and it has a foreward by Zahi Hawass.   http://www.amazon.com/How-Great-Pyramid-Was-Built/dp/product-description/0060891580

        One of the best architectual reasons given for the existence of the granite relieving chambers above the King chamber is that they raise the lateral movement of the stresses of  the mass of the pyramid on its gable roof above the level of the end of the Grand Gallery, so that they do not destroy the structural integrity of the gallery.  Vincent Brown has an interesting theory which identifies a cross sectional view of the king chamber and its five relieving chambers to the ancient Egyptian hieroglyph for eternity and stability, the Djed Pillar, signifying the four cardinal directions.
