That house just rotates on ball bearings. I don't see how that mitigates high wind forces at all.
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.
