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