Duke to Attempt World Record for Largest Cardboard Fortress

On Friday, Sept. 20, a crew of Duke University employees and students will attempt to build the largest fort made entirely of recycled cardboard in Durham, NC.

Participants hope to break the world record by using 3,500 cardboard boxes, gathered from academic buildings and student move-in, to erect the structure.

The event begins at 9 a.m. on the West Campus quad in front of Duke Chapel. Media members are invited to cover the event and interview participants from 2-3 p.m. Parking will be available in the Bryan Center surface lot. More information on the effort is available here.
Organizers will be on hand, including Arwen Buchholz, program coordinator for Duke’s recycling and waste reduction office. Buchholz can be reached prior to the event at (919) 660-1448 or email.
