    Awesome, Andy.

    Really great read. Despite the dorky screenprinter metaphors!

    Looking forward to the Flatstock article.

    just build a teardrop shaped building on a pivot. a hurrican house. they should make it a mandatory structure.

    on a hill.

    I believe Buckminstyer fuller designed one specifically for hurricane prone areas. I read an article about such structures soewhere.

    I mean..your avergae airplane can deal with 700 mph winds, relatively speaking...why not a house?

    people are fucking stupid and lazy.

    people are also fucking poor...a house on a pivot? great idea, but i cant imagine the production costs.

    Even though earthquake forces are harder to understand and quantify than wind forces, they are actually easier to mitigate in principle. The San Francisco City Hall and the Hearst Mining Building at UC Berkeley (and other structures) now sit on large rubber pads called base isolators. The engineering for these buildings was done by Forell Elsesser, a company I interned for a couple of years ago. Basically, during a seismic event the isolators absorb the energy of the earthquake by undergoing large deflections. The structure above experiences the accelerations of a significantly reduced tremblor.

    However, with a wind storm, it's much harder to shield a structure from the resulting pressures.
