U.S. architect Bryan Berg set another Guinness World Record by breaking his own for creating the world's largest house of cards in Macau's the Venetian Hotel.


Berg poses with his creations after breaking his own Guinness World Record in Macau.

With 44 days and 218,792 cards (4,051 decks of cards), Berg completed the replica of three constructions in Macau, the Plaza, Sands Hotel and the Venetian Hotel. The replicas are 10.5 meters long, three meters tall and 272 kilogram in weight. If laid end to end, the cards used would stretch 21 kilometers. Berg stacked the cards together with no glue or tape.

A graduate from Harvard University, Berg said he had a strong interest in architecture and was inspired by his grandfather. He has created replicas of the White House and Cinderella's Castle for Walt Disney World.
