This guy must have the patience of a saint don’t you think?
Bryan Berg is a professional “card stacker” 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 pounds per square foot.
Berg has stacked cards for corporate special events, public relations campaigns, and science and children ‘ s museums in many U.S. cities, Canada, Europe, and Asia . Berg ‘ s clients have included Walt Disney World, a Lexus commercial, Procter & Gamble, American major league baseball and hockey, and the San Francisco Opera, among others. He also participated in a music video by The Bravery, playing a lonely man who builds a fantasy world out of cards.
In 2004, Guinness 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. (6th photo down)
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.
