Buildings are not made earth quake resistance rather they are made to withstand the seismic energy.
While deigning the building structures, seismic forces too are considered along with combination of various sources. Also structures are embedded with the features such as springs, sliding joints, dampeners, etc. to dampen the seismic forces.
