OMG was our first reaction when we saw this recreation of the Olympic Village in Beijing — yes, the Bird’s Nest, Water Cube, the media tower and all — which took world record cardstacker Bryan Berg several days to build (in a Hong Kong shopping mall), 140,000 cards and NO super glue! We’ve seen the real Olympic Village, but this is awesome shit. Apparently some of Berg’s works can even support up to 108 kg in weight: check out this other awesome vid of two ladies standing on four sheets of particleboard on his cards.
Bryan Berg first broke the Guinness World Record for the World’s Tallest House of Cards in 1992 at the age of seventeen, with a tower fourteen feet, six inches tall, and has gone on since to build ever grander and more complex structures. Someone hand this chap a gold medal!
