world's record: a hotel of cards

Bryan Berg, an American architect has broken the world record for the largest building made entirely of playing cards.

The building Bryan created is a replica of China's Venetian Macau hotel, the world's largest casino resort hotel.  He built the card structure inside the real hotel.

The building is nearly 32 feet  (10 meters) long and 10 feet tall (3 meters).  It was created using 218,792 playing cards or 4,051 decks. No glue or tape was used.

Said Bryan, "It's really like a real construction project because you have to engineer every single adjacency and every support that's supporting everything above."   [www_ananova_com]   [www_seemacaunow_com]
