There's no telling when an earthquake can strike, which is why engineers building in earthquake-prone places need to be careful. Earthquake-proofing buildings takes cutting-edge science and lots of testing, but these amazing creations help keep people safe and prevent further chaos in the event of disaster. Full-color photographs that chronicle the construction of simple bunker-like rooms as well as more complex buildings yet to be tested by major geological events will mesmerize readers. They'll also get a look at how high-rises are built to combat the shaking and swaying that comes with these natural disasters
