Bryan Berg is a 33-year-old American who builds huge structures out of playing cards and has the record for the world’s tallest card house with his 25ft skyscraper.� The professional ‘cardstacker’ has created a variety of breathtaking sculptures over the years including models of cathedrals, skyscrapers and stadiums, without using anything to stick them together. Berg said the combined weight of the cards and his special grid structures helped hold his constructions in place.
Berg first started building card houses at the age of eight. He first broke the Guinness World Record for the World’s Tallest House of Cards in 1992 at the age of seventeen, with a tower fourteen feet, six inches tall. His creation, which took five weeks to build, stands at 25ft 9inches tall and was made from 1,800 decks of playing cards. It was limited only by the height of the building he was working in.
