<b>Earthquake Resistance Architecture A Study for the Architectural Design of Buildings in Sesmic Zones</b> In Addressing the role of architects and the architectural aspects of earthquake performance of buildings, this paper has had three objective First to show that earthquake construction is not merely an engineering activity for structural engineers, it is an activity to be shared by both engineers and architects Second to demonstrate the role that non computal or architectural aspects plays in determining the earthquake resistance of building, and third to emphasise the need for engineers to understand characteristics of traditional construction and for architects to understand the problem and nature of earthquake effect on building.
