BRYAN BERG Made The Structure in 44 Days
It’s a replica of The Venetian® Macao, The Plaza® Macao, and Sands Macao. Its size is 10.39 m (34 ft 1.05 in) long, 2.88 m (9 ft 5.39 in) tall and 3.54 m (11 ft 7.37 in) wide.
Created by Bryan Berg (USA) in Macau, China, on 10 March 2010. Bryan Berg is known as the best card stacker in the world. His grandfather introduced him to this field when he was 8 years old. He didn’t taught him much, but, at least gave him some inspiration which later helped him win the praise for his, “Largest Playing Card Structure.”
Bryan Berg achieved this title in 44 days. He completed the construction of the structures using 218,792 cards. When an interviewer asked him whether he considers card stacking as a hobby or an art, Bryan replied,
“Lots of different definitions exist for the term “art”. I guess my creations are “state-of-the-art”, at least in the little world of card stacking. And in that sense, I’ve made an “art” of it.
The very nature of card stacking is artistic because it requires a certain artistic and creative energy to pursue such an undertaking. Building a massive house of cards is very much like painting a picture or playing a musical instrument…it all comes out of a need for expression. I also believe that card stacking is an ancient activity, as old as cards themselves.” Source
