How Are Earthquake Proof Buildings Made?

Answer

Earthquake proof buildings are made by creating enough reinforcement for the building to stand the maximum possible sideway motions for the house occupants to get out to safety before it succumbs. This is achieved by reinforcing the building materials which include both the bricks and blocks. The building foundation of tall buildings does not sit directly on the ground. That protects the building from earthquake shocks.
