French architect and Egyptologist. He was considered to be the foremost expert on pyramid construction techniques and methods. Upon the invitation of his nephew Jacques Hardy and the poor prospects for architects in post war France he went to Egypt. He worked for 75 years in Saqqara mainly on the restoration of Djoser's mortuary complex.
