A robust solution for typical problems of developing countries is proposed here. It consists of a complete and coherent set of technical and organisational measures combined with provisions of technology transfer. The design system for individual housing is adapted to the socio-cultural acceptance, which ensures earthquake safety by a lightweight steel-framed body supported on an innovative base-isolation system. Earthquake-resistant design of low rise buildings; seismic isolated structures; structural rehabilitation, strengthening and retrofit of existing buildings and sustainable construction materials are of particular interest.
