Earthquake

What are the latest in construction technology that allow buildings and structures to withstand earthquakes at higher magnitudes?

I saw that the Japan's Hyogo Earthquake Engineering Research Center tested their newest earthquake-resistant design buildings. They built 3 quarters-size model of a typical 3-storey office establishment, with a footprint 120 by 180 feet, and a m* equivalent to a *ll-size structure. They shook it at a magnitude 1.75 and the only reported damage is the frame.

In all the buildings that we have in our country today, how many of them are designed to resist a power*l earthquake?

The old buildings definitely don’t have an earthquake resistance feature or whatever you call it. The newer ones… well I thinks it’s mandatory that they build earthquake resistant buildings that keep them from shaking every time we are experiencing tremors. This keeps the building from crumbling down.
