Earthquake engineering: Shock absorving foundations

Fundaciones de estructuras sismo-resistentes

Very short but amazing video, on how new technologies in earthquake engineering have evolved the concept of designing building foundations. To the left you will see a traditional design, with a building that swings together with the shake; to the right, a building where the foundations absorb the shock. Amaaaaaazing technology! A Japanese trademark!
