Y9 Building an Earthquake Proof Building

Well done to year 9 who have just finished building their own earthquake proof structures and are about to start their GIS activity of siting their hospitals in San Francisco.  Here are some questions to think about for their future project. 

Where is this building?

Why is it this shape?

What is it intended to withstand?

When was it built?

Who built this building?  

Here is some footage of the Transamerican Pyramid
