Silent Sunday

As a kid, I built houses of cards, but nothing like this:














Bryan Berg is a professional "cardstacker" who builds houses of cards on a very large scale.  Trained as an architect, Bryan Berg is the only known person to make a living building structures with freestanding playing cards.  He uses no tape, glue, or tricks, and his method has been tested to support 660 lbs. per square foot.

  In 2004, Guiness created a record category for 'World's Largest House of Freestanding Playing Cards' to recognize a project Berg built for Walt Disney World, a replica of Cinderella's Castle.  In 2010, the record was renewed by himself using 4051 sets of cards, over 218,000 cards, and built in 44 days, a replica of the Venetian Macao...
