8 Famous Landmarks Built With Cards
From the Empire State Building to Cinderella's Castle, professional "cardstacker" Bryan Berg is famous for building well-known buildings out of thousands and thousands of playing cards.
Bryan Berg replicated Disney World's Cinderella's Castle in 2004. Composed of 3,000 decks of cards, the castle is 14 feet high with a base of 14 square feet. Berg's larger projects carry a mass of hundreds of pounds — as Berg will point out, seven decks of cards weigh approximately one pound — and support over 660 pounds per square foot. His structures are so sturdy, Berg often needs a leaf blower to tear them down.
