Record-breaking cardstacker completes Houses of Parliament feat
Thursday 23 February 2012
American cardstacker Bryan Berg completed a giant model of the Houses of Parliament yesterday, after a week's modelling.
The structure, which stands at nearly 10ft tall and 15ft wide, and made with over 50,000 standard playing cards, was constructed without glue or tape at Aspers Casino, Westfield Stratford, London to promote Sky Poker's Play the Nation.
Berg, who holds both the records for the world's largest, and tallest, house of freestanding playing cards, is due to tear the build down on Monday alongside Soccer AM's Max Rushden.
