Caption: Earthquake-proof building. The Trans America Building, San Francisco, California, USA. The structure of this skyscraper is designed to resist earth tremors. San Francisco was almost destroyed by an Earthquake in 1906, and another occurred in 1989. These earthquakes are a result of the relative movements of the coastal Pacific plate and the American continental plate of the Earth's crust along the San Andreas fault which stretches 700 miles through the state of California.
